Where Paradox is Natural

What do Lord of the Rings and Iceland have in common? Curious about the home country of popular musical artist Bjork? What is Iceland's position about joining the European Union? Join MIC on Wednesday, May 19, to hear Skuli Helgason, an experienced radio journalist, speak about Iceland's unique juxtaposition of tradition with a high-tech society when he answers the question, “Are high-tech elves eligible for the European Union?”

Skuli Helgason is currently studying in the Executive Master's program of Public Affairs at the Humphrey Institute. Originally from Reykjavik, Mr. Helgason graduated from the University of Iceland with a B.A. in Political Science. He has been involved in national and international programs of culture, most notably as Manager of Local Events for Reykjavik, European City of Culture, in the year 2000.
