George Ferguson

Name: 
George Ferguson

I have been a member of the Nordic Society committee since late 2016, and have served a variety of roles since then, including acting as Treasurer during my year abroad in Sweden. After a very unsuccessful year in 2016, where events were completely unattended and the society was almost falling apart with me as the only remaining committee member, I decided to build up the society, and after headhunting and recruiting other engaged committee members, I helped to plan Nordic Society's first trip abroad to Iceland, which was a huge success. During the year of 2017, I believe the society was stronger and better than it ever has been, and I intend to take the lead during my MA at UCL and continue the progress that we achieved at that time.

As well as my long experience managing the society, I am just about to complete my BA in Scandinavian Studies, having studied Nordic languages and history. I have a vast knowledge of Nordic culture and a capability in every Nordic language, including lesser known ones such as Faroese. It has always been my intention to make the society more inclusive, insofar as creating events to represent lesser represented Nordic nations and peoples. I want to make the society more academic, more varied and more interesting. I intend to plan several trips, e.g. to York, the northern Scottish isles, day trip to a Scandinavian country etc. I also intend to hold more varied events, e.g. museum visits and academic talks ...
