Following the Viking attack on the monastery at Lindisfarne, England
in 793 AD, the following approx. 300 years constitute 'the Viking
Age in which the peoples of Scandinavia put their cultural imprint
on large parts of Europe and the Middle East and North America!
They were conquerors and partners in a world vibrant with cultural
exchange and trade. During this trip we'll visit museums and sights
pertaining to Scandinavia's past and consider the possibility of
finding traces of the rambunctious Viking past in the modern Scandinavian
states. The Danish, Norwegian and Swedish descendents of the Vikings
have excelled in numerous ways most of all in their open, friendly,
and liberal societies. Along with first-hand experience of contemporary
life in the three Scandinavian nations, we will study ancient Viking
culture, and more recent history, in museums and sights, in order
to make connections between the present and the past. Course requirements
include preparatory meetings, book reports, completion of travel
journal, and a post-travel research paper on a topic chosen in conjunction
with the instructor targeting a contemplation of the relationship
between past and present.
