Presenter Marcus Cederstroöööm


Why do we eat the things we eat? And how do those things change over time? Community Curator of Nordic-American Folklore at UW-Madison Marcus Cederström will explore what the foods we eat can tell us about immigration and Nordic-American life in the Upper Midwest. Before the presentation, attendees will enjoy a Scandinavian-themed buffet dinner provided by Blue Plate Catering.

This program is presented in partnership with the UW-Madison Speakers Bureau.

Pre-registration and payment is required for this event.
