Borgen Briefing

Start: Feb 18, 2012 02:00 PM

Location: Mercer Room, Covent Garden Community Centre, 42 Earlham Street, London WC2H 9LA

When the Danish drama Borgen hit British television screens last month, our Twitter followers were keen to learn some Danish cultural background information - language, TV industry, coalition politics and pastries - that would help them make sense of this political drama. So our Borgen Briefing will include short, fun presentations by UCL experts on Danish language and culture, and a Q&A with our very special guest from Denmark, Annette K. Olsen, who directed episodes 9 and 10. We couldn’t find an expert on the cultural history of Danish pastries, so we'll just serve up lots of coffee and wienerbrød on the day.

Spaces limited, please book your seat in advance.
