Intercultural Forum: Tired of Stereotypes?
Expectations and Experiences of Sweden and the U.S. The American Club of Sweden in collaboration with the Swedish Fulbright Commission, the Swedish Fulbright Alumnae Association, AFS Intercultural Programs, and Swedish Institute is pleased to host this timely and important discussion concerning our perceptions of one another.
