Coastal cultures form a complex area of research, offering new opportunities to investigate and understand the historyof cultural encounters and transnational “regionsof culture” across the Northern peripheries. This article investigates the connected cultures of coastal communities of Norway, Scotland, and Canada after 1700. A shared, diverse, but similarly sea-focused cultural landscape exists across the North that informs the way in which regional cultural identities are formed and maintained. Using new methodologies of cultural transfer such as entangled histories or histoire croisée, this article pays particular attention to the creationof transient cross-cultural networks and regions stimulated by trade and related contacts across the North Sea and the North Atlantic.
