Crisis in the Nordic Nations and Beyond : At the Intersection of Environment, Finance and Multiculturalism, Paperback / softback Book

Crisis in the Nordic Nations and Beyond : At the Intersection of Environment, Finance and Multiculturalism Paperback / softback


With discourses of 'crisis' and 'disaster' featuring strongly in contemporary discourses on contemporary society, this book brings together critical perspectives from across the humanities and social sciences to explore the idea of 'crisis' as inherently related to power dynamics and the formation of different subjectivities and identities within the Nordic countries and globally.

This volume emphasizes the importance of investigating the interrelationship of three crises - social, economic and environmental - as these address the interlinked surfaces of the same reality, and it examines the negative connotations of the notion of crisis, whilst also raising the question of when and why something becomes identified as crisis, and for whom.

With chapters on media representations of crisis and the global context of crisis discourses, the crisis of national identities and their mobilization in response, and environmental crisis, as well as the interrelationship between the social and the environmental and the different positioning of individuals in relation to power, this volume offers an understanding of crisis as a multivocal symbol of the present.

As such, it will appeal to scholars of sociology, anthropology, history, cultural studies, literature and political science.
