Roald Amundsen's Private Diary | ONLINE

Roald Amundsen's Private Diary | ONLINE

ROALD AMUNDSEN’S PRIVATE DIARY | ONLINE

The world-famous polar explorer Roald Amundsen, the first person to reach the South Pole, carefully cultivated his public image. He extensively documented his expeditions in his journals, anticipating each of them would be published. But he also kept a private diary, addressed to the married Englishwoman Kristine Elisabeth “Kiss” Bennett, whom he’d secretly loved for the past decade. The diary offers an intimate, humanizing, and sometimes unflattering glimpse into the life of the man behind the myth.

SIDE OM SIDE- PART 1 | IN-PERSON

(NRK Television Program, available online in the US without subscription)

This beloved sitcom has been on air since 2013 and captures suburban family life in a relatable way, albeit undeniably Norwegian.  Jonas and Marie are happily in love and are just settling into their new home in the fictional town of Granli, Østfold. The idyllic suburb seems, or rather quickly seemed, like the place to take their next steps until they meet their neighbors, the quirky Pedersen family and the affluent Kopperud family. Each 20-minute episode tests the neighbors’ persistence and the new residents’ relationship. 

 Participants will watch 2-3 episodes per week at home. Every other class period will introduce the coming episodes with new vocabulary, and we'll discuss the previous episode. As 100 episodes are currently broadcast, the course will focus on seasons 1-4, and draw from the subsequent.
