“The Danes are obsessed with coziness – all of them!”
Teacher: Jannie Pallesen Lessons: 4 /week
The aim of this course is to learn more about Denmark and the Danes.
This will be done through a participatory approach where the students will meet and explore the Danish culture through both lectures and discussions as well as through visits to institutions and museums.
In this course we will explore what’s unique about Denmark and the Danish path of development. The class will deal with topics such as the welfare state, education, family structure, Danish youth, elderly care, and childcare and the general work life in Denmark etc. We mainly focus on contemporary issues but will also take a look at the historical development of Denmark.
The course will be a mixture of excursions to interesting places and institutions, discussions, getting to know interesting Danes of past and present, and small student presentations.
