This course serves the needs of students who wish to develop special topics not offered in the Scandinavian Studies curriculum. It may be a program of directed readings with reports, or it may be a research project and long paper. Either must be supervised by a faculty member, and the student must have the faculty member's agreement before electing the course. This course is also used by concentrators for developing preliminary research and a prospectus for the senior thesis.

We will watch Swedish films, and read modern Swedish fiction from the same countries as bases for oral and written analyses and for classroom discussions. We will look at the picture and image of Sweden that these films and texts give us, and compare it with the "real life" that is presented to us through magazines and newspapers. Grades will be based on class participation, written assignments, and oral presentation. The teacher is a native speaker from Sweden.
