Scand30: Money can’t buy you Hygge
Kristian Næsby, Lecturer in Danish, UW

HYGGE—No other Scandinavian topic has drawn more attention over the last decade. Hundreds of books and articles have been written to explain the quaint combination of coziness, candles, woolen socks and hot chocolate to the American audience. But there is more to hygge than meets the eye. This talk looks beyond the tranquil representation of hygge outside of Denmark to discuss the real pros and cons of this Danish and international sensation.  

Scandinavian 30 is a series of free, thirty-minute talks by Scandinavian Studies and other UW faculty held on the second Thursday of each month at the Nordic Museum. Grab a drink at our café, Freya, enjoy the evening, and learn about Scandinavia!

Doors: 6:30pm | Lecture: 7pm

Cost: Free
