Nordic Metamodern

Nov 25 2022 • 1 hr 15 mins

Meet Lars Trägårdh, professor of history (SE).

From around the globe, people look at Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland as some sort of Utopia. What’s their secret, how different are the Nordic countries from other countries, and how different are they from each other? What does nationalism look like in the Nordics, and are the Swedes really human?

The Nordic countries did very well during the modern era. Their secret? An approach to education called bildung. Metamodernity is a possible future where we take the best from the past and the present, locally and globally, and turn it into a meaningful future for all. Welcome to Nordic Metamodern where we explore an achievable utopia and bildung around the globe.
