The architecture in Prague was out of this world. I felt like I was on a movie set as I walked around the city because everything looked so beautiful. This experience really made me see how beautiful the world can be!

Dates: June 2014 -- hybrid course, combining online course delivery with face-to face class time in Denmark.
From its notoriety as home of the Vikings, to its current status as home of the happiest people in the world, Denmark is famous for Hamlet, Kierkegaard, pastry, and leaders in architecture and design. But Denmark also has a long and solid tradition of cultural production for young people --just think of Hans Christian Anderson, Tivoli Gardens, and Legoland. In this academically rigorous course on international cultural production for children, Denmark will serve as a case study for such, providing students with hands-on perspectives on international children's literature, librarianship, museums, and a view of how different cultures construct "childhood".
