Cultural Constructions of Nordic Nationalisms

Master's level | 15 credits | Course code: KVL280

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

The course problematizes and explores how ideas and notions of nation and nationalisms are, and have been, constructed in the Nordic region. Concepts such as identity, migration and borders are discussed and examined. Central theoretical concepts are introduced and used to investigate how concepts of nation and nationalisms are constructed and expressed in different aesthetic, media and social contexts, in various political and historical contexts. By conducting an independent study, students have the opportunity to apply theoretical concepts, challenge ideas and explore cultural constructions within the course theme. The study is presented and discussed at a seminar.
