Identity, Freedom, and Moral Imagination in the Baltics
Is it useful to describe the Baltic Sea Region as situated between East and West, or between North and South? How has Balticness manifested itself, both historically and in modern times, in the region and beyond? This series presents new views on the Baltic Sea Region from national, regional, and global perspectives. Rather than limited to the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, the series understands Balticness as a broader notion referring to communities, states, and networks around the Baltic Sea. Our interest is the multiplicity of interactions between various groups and actors which transcend national, political, cultural, and social boundaries and often have a global reach. The series promotes a critical examination of politics, identities, and cultural phenomena through their multilevel contacts, interactions, tensions, and conflicts that have shaped the region from premodern periods to the present. Studies in the series draw on inter- and transdisciplinary approaches, ranging from the humanities to social sciences. The series prioritises area studies research addressing political, social, and intercultural entanglements, as well as various forms of intellectual, artistic, and social transfer, all of which call for the adoption of transregional perspectives. Examples include relationships between the centre and periphery, between major and minor actors, between actors below and above state levels, together with the role of discourses of historical and cultural diversity, as well as of appropriation and reconciliation.
