Swedish journalist explores northwestern North Dakota

The Minot Area Council for International Visitors has developed local programming for Therese Larsson Hultin, chief foreign analyst at Svenska Dagbladet, one of Sweden’s top daily newspapers, as she visits the Minot region Oct. 26-30. Hultin will investigate the Bakken oil patch and discuss 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., 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,” the most popular broadcast program in Sweden.

Oct. 27-28, MACIV members will accompany Hultin into the oil patch so that she can understand energy development and its social and economic effects. She will meet with Neset Consulting Services representatives as well as health and human services officials in Stanley.

Oct. 29, the visitor will meet with students at Des Lacs High School and Minot State University to discuss careers in journalism and other media avenues.

“MACIV has welcomed visitors from all over the world who are interested in many aspects of rural life. Comprised of members from Minot State University and the wider Minot community, MACIV has received extensive accolades from visitors for its hospitality, generosity, and professional programs,” said Joseph Jastrzembski, MACIV president. “An all-volunteer group, MACIV’s members show a broad range of local, state, national and international experience in the professions, government, education and the arts.”

MACIV has been headquartered at Minot State since 1992. For questions, contact Jastrzembski at or 858-3322.
