Additional information
Over the last decades, the Baltic example has been mentioned as a vibrant site of both merging and conflicting cultural identities. Processes occurring in socio-cultural border areas – negotiations, inclusion/exclusion, usurpation, borrowing, interpreting – and resulting in mixed or hybrid cultural forms are not exclusively characteristic for the Baltics, however the Baltics provide a specific example of the growing sense of an in-betweenness that can serve as a starting point for further discussions on the role literature and art plays in responding to global challenges. Reflecting upon the Baltic experience prompts asking what lies behind the non-problematically used denominations: “national culture”, “national society”, “national literature”, etc. To what extent is it possible to observe the Baltic example as a unique situation – or does it rather mirror larger patterns of cultural change as well as awareness of those changes and their capacity to produce new meanings?
Answers to these questions could be sought by developing the border thinking and by looking for diverse cultural representation forms, be it the relationship between one’s own and the unfamiliar (different), the dominant and the subdued, the central and the peripheral, the global and the local, the collective and the individual, the official and the unofficial, the accepted and the rejected, etc.
Papers published in this volume include both the case studies focusing upon the works by individual authors and broader insights in literary process concentrating on separate branches of literature (émigré, regional, minorities’ literature) or historical change through the centuries.
