Norwegian Cultural History
Students will understand key trends and works from Norwegian cultural history, recognize connections between these works, and be able to relate them to the development of contemporary Norwegian culture.
Analytic, Research, and Writing Skills
Students should be able to insightfully analyze important literary and artistic works from Norwegian cultural history and be able to communicate this analysis through articulate written and oral presentations in Norwegian. Students will also develop basic research skills.
Students should relate the ideas and issues raised by the works we study in class to the students’ own cultural moment as well as to their own experience with contemporary Norwegian culture.
Students should better know how to understand, interpret, and thoughtfully reflect upon the literature and art encountered later in life.
