Beyond Borealism: New Perspectives on the North
2016 (English)In: Coastal Cultures in Scotland and Norway: Narratives, Affinity, Contact / [ed] Ian Giles, Laura Chapot, Christian Cooijmans, Ryan Foster, Barbara Tesio., London: Norvik Press, 2016Chapter in book (Refereed)
This volume presents a range of new perspectives on the Nordic region, as well as its myriad of influences on its surroundings. The fifteen chapters in this publication showcase some of the best research being conducted by emerging researchers in Britain on Nordic topics.
The article investigates transnational cultural encounters that cross the established research areas of Northern European, Nordic, and Scandinavian Studies. Using approaches from Scandinavian research on coastal communities and cultural spaces, the article examines cultural transfer between Norway and Scotland through trade and exchange during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The interdisciplinary and transnational approach adopted throughout the paper suggests new perspectives in researching coastal communities in Britain, as part of a wider understanding of cultural encounters between the communities of the North.
