Beschreibung

The cultural borders of Europe are today more visible than ever, and with them comes a sense of uncertainty with respect to liberal democratic traditions: whether treated as abstractions or concrete realities, cultural divisions challenge concepts of legitimacy and political representation as well as the legal bases for citizenship. Thus, an understanding of such borders and their consequences is of utmost importance for promoting the evolution of democracy. Cultural Borders of Europe provides a wide-ranging exploration of these lines of demarcation in a variety of regions and historical eras, providing essential insights into the state of European intercultural relations today.



Autorentext

Ingmar Söhrman was Professor of Romance languages at the University of Gothenburg. Among his publications is Diachronic and Typical Perspectives on Verbs (John Benjamins, 2013), coedited with Folke Josephson.
