Narrating Otherness in Poland and in Sweden

European Heritage as a Discourse of Inclusion and Exclusion


Edited By Krzysztof Kowalski, Łucja Piekarska-Duraj and Barbara Törnquist-Plewa

The book studies how multiple representations of the Other are constructed, Europeanized and used in Poland and Sweden in various heritage related contexts (museums, cities, war cemeteries, commemoration sites etc.) in the second decade of the 21st century. In a more general sense, the authors raise the question of how difference (in terms of culture, ethnicity, class, gender, etc.) is constructed and leads to its social inclusion, domestication, marginalization or – increasingly common in Scandinavian and Central European peripheries – exclusion.
