The European Integration, Re-arrangement of Place and Space in the Nordic Countries
This paper is an exploratory discussion of place and space from a cultural geographic point of view. On the one hand it discusses the concept of place, trying to identify some of its characteristics connected to different Nordic understandings of landscape and place; this will take departure in people’s practice in place and landscape. It will on the other hand discuss the more abstract concept of space and how this could be understood in a Nordic context when it comes to issues like planning and the production of different social spaces.
