Pre-departure information

New in Sweden

How did state building play a part in people’s life and what did it mean to live through Christianization or the Reformation in this part of the world? What was similar across the region, and in what ways was life different in the emerging Nordic states, Denmark, Norway and Sweden?

This course addresses questions such as these, aiming to provide both an overview of Nordic history circa 1000 to 1750 and in-depth study of particular issues.

The history of the Nordic world circa 1000 to 1750 is a history of state building, changing religious affiliations amidst technological and cultural upheavals. The course discusses change and continuity within the region and connects this to the larger history of medieval and early modern European history. The course language is English.

The course is aimed at international students interested in an introduction to Nordic history and to discuss questions about societal and cultural change in the medieval and early modern world. 

  • Schedule

    The schedule will be available no later than one month before the start of the course. We do not recommend print-outs as changes can occur. At the start of the course, your department will advise where you can find your schedule during the course.
