Americans living in Sweden are finding it difficult to explain what is happening in their country. The nature of cultural difference means that there will always be a need for a conversation to explain one another, but today many Americans find it difficult to explain their country at all no matter which side of the political divide they stand on. Swedes at the same time find it hard to comprehend the events in America and what they mean, particularly for the strong nexus that has existed between Swedish and American culture. At the same time Sweden also faces a time of rapid change in which profound questions of identity and value dominate the daily debates.
The conversation will be moderated and focus on different topics each time. Topics for our conversations vary, and future topics will be announced and be guided by the results of the previous gatherings. All conversations will follow our Club values of friendship, inclusiveness, and intercultural awareness.
