Karen Blixen is the insightful Scandinavian writer whose work resulted in the outstanding movie, ‘Out of Africa’. She is the subject of Mads’s doctoral work. This will be our last opportunity to hear from Mads, who over the tenure of his stay at UBC, has consistently contributed his insight to our cultural events at the Scandinavian Centre. His program is ending and he will return to work in Denmark this April.
