What makes a magazine in South Africa promote Scandinavian unity among its immigrant readers and why does a Swedish king endorse attempts to influence pan-Scandinavian opinion through a transnational media event in Sweden, Norway and Denmark? Can portraits of exotic Lapplanders in the British press, enthusiastic accounts of the welfare state in post-war travel literature and descriptions of the liberal Nordic woman as a metaphor for a freer society in Franco Spain really be bundled together under a joint label of 'Nordicness'? How is it that despite the variety of images of the Nordic region that are circulating, we still find this recurring idea of a shared Nordic identity? These are some of the questions the current volume seeks to answer. Covering the time period from the early nineteenth century up until the present and encompassing case studies from Britain, Spain, Poland, and South Africa, as well as from the Nordic countries, contributors to the volume investigate the images that have been presented of the Nordic region in the media in and outside of the Nordic countries, how such images have been shaped by mechanisms of mediation, and the channels through which they have been distributed. The chapters address both specific cases such as media events and individual publications, as well as the structural and institutional settings for mediating the Nordic region.

Dance has been connected to the practices and ideologies that have shaped notions of a Nordic region for more than a century and it is ingrained into the culture and society of the region. This book investigates different dance phenomena that have either engaged with or dismantled notions of Nordicness. Looking to the motion of dancers and dance forms between different locations, organizations and networks of individuals, its authors discuss social dancing, as well as historical processes associated with collaborations in folk dance and theatre dance. They consider how similarities and differences between the Nordic countries may be discerned, for instance in patterns of reception at the arrival of dance forms from outside the Nordic countries - and vice versa, how dance from the Nordic countries is received in other parts of the world, as seen for example in the Nordic Cool Festival at the Kennedy Centre in 2013. The book opens a rare window into Nordic culture seen through the prism of dance. While it grants the reader new insights into the critical role of dance in the formation and imagining of a region, it also raises questions about the interplay between dance practices and politics.

Das Meer, die Erde, die Sterne, die Liebe und der Tod: Eine große Verserzählung über die Erschaffung der Welt. Von der Erschaffung der Erde und der Gestirne erzählt dieses Epos, von der Kultivierung des Bodens und dem launischen Meer, vor allem aber von den Begegnungen mit dem schemenhaften Land im Norden, um dessen Tochter die Herren Wäinämöinen, Lemminkäinen und Ilmarinen gleichermaßen werben. Doch auf die Freier warten gefährliche Aufgaben. Kalewala, das Land des Urvaters Kalewa, ist Schauplatz dieses groß angelegten Freskos der mythenumsponnenen Frühzeit Finnlands. Auf zahlreichen Fußreisen hatte Elias Lönnrot - im Geist des spätromantischen 19. Jahrhunderts - Tausende von Versen mündlich überlieferter Lieder gesammelt, Lieder epischen, lyrischen und beschwörenden Inhalts, die er in der Folge zu einem teils heldisch-kriegerischen, teils zauberhaft-magischen Epos verband. Viele namhafte Übersetzer haben sich am »Kalewala« versucht, doch erst Gisbert Jänickes Arbeit ist es, die den höchsten Ansprüchen genügt: Sie ist vollständig, beruht in allen Details auf dem Original, berücksichtigt auch die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse und besticht durch ihre geschmeidig fließende Eleganz.
