The next event planned by RNH is a talk by Norwegian journalist Jan Arild Snoen Monday 15 October on the European Media Bias Against the US, in meeting room O-201 in Oddi, the Social Science House, at the University of Iceland, at lunchtime, 12–13. Snoen argues that much of the coverage of Americans and their culture in European media betrays ignorance and a lack of understanding and sympathy with the subject matter. This event is co-sponsored by the IABF, the Icelandic-American Business Forum. The chairman of the Forum, financial analyst Jeffrey B. Sussman, will chair the meeting.
Jan Arild Snoen, born in 1964, works for the liberal-conservative Internet journal Minerva and has published an unauthorised biography of right-wing populist politician Carl Hagen, and a defense of globalisation. He is vice-chairman of the Monticello Society which seeks to improve relations between Norway and the United States. His wife, Ellen Christiansen, has been a member of parliament for the Conservative Party. Snoen’s lecture is a part of the project “Europe, Iceland and the Future of Capitalism”, jointly organised by RNH and AECR, the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists.
