A unique perspective of the history between Sweden and the United States.

Please join us for a special discussion with a professor from Uppsala University as he discusses the relationships between the countries and the fluctuations in Swedish emigration to the United States. According to the U.S. Department of State, “Relations between the United States and Sweden are built on a shared heritage that dates back to 1638 when the first Swedish immigrants arrived on the shores of Delaware.” With such a long-standing history, our speaker will discuss the current landscape and thoughts on the future.

SPEAKER

Dag Blanck, Director, Swedish Institute for North American Studies, Uppsala University and Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center at Augustana College
