What do the Corn Belt and Denmark have in common? Agriculture - and a shared passion for butter and bacon! For many centuries, agriculture has dominated both the Danish landscape and Danish society. Join us for a presentation by Diya Nagaraj from the Museum of Danish America to learn more about the history of Danish agriculture and some of the current dilemmas facing Danish agriculture.
This presentation is a great opportunity to learn more about the agricultural traditions that influenced the development of Shelby County!
The presentation will take place at the Shelby County Historical Museum at 1805 Morse Ave. in Harlan. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Presenter: Diya Nagaraj is the Albert Ravenholt Curator of Danish-American Culture at the Museum of Danish America in Elk Horn, Iowa.
