On the Swedish Vetenskapsradion Historia, you can listen to Annelie Drakman’s talk about joy as divine grace or an individualistic project. Dick Harrison unravels the history of May Day, which was not always a great day for workers. Also, Jenny Larsson, a linguistics professor at Stockholm University and one of the Center for the Human Past principal investigators, tells about the super venture, Center for the Human Past, where linguists, archaeologists, and geneticists must put their wise heads together to solve ancient riddles (in Swedish). Listen & enjoy 😃!
