ScandGrads is the graduate student group affiliated with the Department of Scandinavian at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to arranging campus events and talks throughout the year, ScandGrads has recently begun holding an interdisciplinary graduate student symposium every spring.

Our 2017 symposium, Encounters and Reimaginings: Medieval Scandinavia and the World, proudly hosted twenty-seven students and early career researchers from around the US and Europe and featured plenary talks by Marianne Kalinke and Jonas Wellendorf.

Our 2018 symposium, Borders and Bridges: Nordic Nationalisms and Transnationalisms, will take place March 9–10, 2018 in Berkeley, California and is currently accepting proposals.
