Description

Title of paper: Nordic border crossings: coastal communities and connected cultures in Norway and Scotland This paper discusses the connected cultures of Norway and Scotland’s coastal communities and the intercultural links that have historically crossed Nordic borders across the North Sea. It will compare some of the cultural, economic and social dynamics that create this unique cultural landscape or kystkultur, particularly the creation of transient cross-cultural networks and regions stimulated by trade and related contacts across the North Sea and the North Atlantic Rim.
