Claus Elholm Andersen recently joined the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic as an assistant professor of Danish. In his Contemporary Scandinavian Literature class, he’s leading students in exploring some big questions.
“We will read Scandinavian literature from the past 10 years and ask the following basic questions: Does literature still matter today? Can contemporary authors tell us anything new about the world we live in? And are the problems and topics, described by Scandinavian writers, relevant to an American audience?”
