Social Trust, Independence and Danish Design: The Sociology of Scandinavian Childhoods

How does living in Denmark, a welfare state with high levels of social trust, affect how childhood is experienced? How might cultural commitment to good design and happiness contribute?  And, what happens when an 
American sociologist brings her family to live in Denmark and has her American middle class parenting values challenged? Join one of Whitman's most engaging faculty members as she delves into current sociological research and personal stories on how childhood is constructed in Scandinavia as compared to the U.S.

Michelle Janning, Professor of Sociology and Paul Garrett Fellow, joined Whitman College in 2000. Her main teaching interests at Whitman are in the areas of family, gender, childhood, culture, popular culture, and education. Michelle is a native Minnesotan who spent part of her childhood in Germany. She recently served as a visiting professor in Sociology at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad, and again as a Fulbright Specialist Scholar.
