Swedish journalist discovers North Dakota

Therese Larsson Hultin, chief foreign analyst at Svenska Dagbladet, one of Sweden’s top daily newspapers, visited the Minot region Oct. 26-30. The Minot Area Council for International Visitors developed local programming for Larsson Hultin. She investigated the Bakken oil patch and discussed media careers with high school and Minot State University students.

Currently a 2014 Transatlantic Media Fellow with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., Larsson Hultin is studying the American political system, the role of religion in American life, U. S. foreign policy and the changing role of NATO. In addition to her work at Svenska Dagbladet, she has been a business news anchor on Sveriges Television and a presenter on the Sveriges Radio program, “P1-Morgon.”  

Oct. 29, Larsson Hultin met with Minot State University communication arts students to discuss careers in journalism and other media avenues.

Earlier in her visit to North Dakota, MACIV members accompanied Hultin into the oil patch so that she could understand energy development and its social and economic effects. She met with Neset Consulting Services representatives as well as health and human services officials in Stanley. She also visited with Des Lacs high school students about media experiences.

After leaving Minot, Larsson Hultin will travel to Seattle, Los Angeles, Houston and Fort Worth in Texas, Salt Lake City, Utah, Georgia and Miami, among other locations.

A nonprofit, community-and university-based organization, MACIV has been headquartered at Minot State University since 1992. MACIV designs and implements professional programs and provides cultural activities and home-hospitality opportunities for foreign leaders, specialists and international scholars. Individuals from the local council include Minot State University students, faculty and staff, as well as members from Minot and surrounding communities. For questions, contact Joseph Jastrzembski, MACIV president, at or 858-3322.
