Småland Nation, Lund
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (November 2009)|
Smålands Nation is a student society of Lund University in southern Sweden. The name comes from the historical province of Småland. Smålands Nation does not, however, hold history in high regard, preferring to focus on contemporary social issues.
Smålands Nation is distinguished among Lund's nations as an "alternative" nation. It is the only nation not to engage in traditional student activities such as balls and farces. The members of Smålands Nation are more likely to be left wing, including communists, anarchists and Marxists.
The nation considers itself to be politically aware, striving for equality between the sexes, protesting against pollution of the environment and other focusing on other criticisms of modern society. The nation holds a weekly feminist cafe, Ronja, a forum for gender and LGBT issues. If food is served, it is commonly vegan.
The pub is open on Wednesdays and live bands, often from Gothenburg, perform onstage. Clubs are held on Saturdays and feature primarily electronic music.
