Danish culture and society

When you arrive in a new country you are curious and eager to learn more about its culture, the music, the literature, the history, social customs, etc. How do these people think? you might ask. This subject will give you a better idea. We will talk about important personalities and events in Danish history. We will look at influential cultural figures and you will get the opportunity to be challenged on your personal prejudices about the blonde, bacon-eating Dane who loves to pay 60 percent tax.
