About the course:

The course provides broad insights into Swedish culture and everyday life in Sweden by examining areas like everyday life, modernity, ethnicity, work-place culture, youth culture and the cultural impact of globalisation and new economies. With cultural and ethnological analytic perspectives on the individual and society, the course aims to develop and deepen students' knowledge of cultural encounters and ethnicity, modernity, the new economy, the electronic revolution, communications and media, and popular culture in many variations. An important part of the course is to convey the methodological knowledge of ethnological research, and provide training in field work and creative writing. The course can be seen as an essential part of professional preparation in medicine, technology, media, management and ICT-related fields.
