Jane Petersen ’20 – Copenhagen, Denmark
Hometown: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Major: Political Economy
First concert: The American Idol Season 2 Cast Tour
Hej guys! My name is Jane and I am a junior hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, and studying at the Danish Institute of Study (DIS) in Copenhagen this semester. I am a Political Economy major (a Williams-specific interdisciplinary major that spans political science, economics and public policy), and I’m excited to interrogate the Danish way of life as it compares to America. How does a monarchical welfare state work? Is Denmark really as hygge as it seems? What’s the deal with pickled herring? These are all questions I hope to explore this semester. Mange tak for reading!
