Swedish Contemporary Culture

Register for this Fall 2022 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website.
Expand your knowledge of Swedish culture by watching and then discussing an assigned film or episodes of a television series each week. Sweden has long been known for their Nordic noir, and has a history of prominent directors, such as Ingmar Berman, whose films have had a global impact. In the past decade, a number of binge-worthy TV shows, movies, and high-caliber actors have emerged from Sweden making it a cinematic hotspot. We will discuss how these cultural creations reflect Sweden's past and present. The course is taught entirely in English. Each semester we explore new media, so the course can be taken repeatedly. Fall 2022 tuition is $419.
