Government of Finland/David and Nancy Speer Visiting Professorship
The Government of Finland/David and Nancy Speer (GOF/DANS) Visiting Professorship was created in 1989 to stimulate interest in Finland; to raise awareness of unique and important Finnish contributions in cultural, political, and social spheres; and to establish new networks between scholars in Finland and the United States.
GOF/DANS professors work at the University of Minnesota for one to three years and have represented many fields of research across the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
