This book is about belonging. It analyses media uses, media representation, globalization and cultural change. But fundamentally, it is a book about identity politics and practices of the Scandinavian societies and people. One of the largest challenges the Scandinavian societies have been struggling with during recent years is how to respond ? politically, socially and culturally ? to the growing number of immigrants and refugees, and their descendants, in societies traditionally conceived of as culturally rather homogeneous. So, in some sense, this book is a story of identity formation ? of identifying and analysing some of the conditions and characteristics upon which the citizens of Denmark, Norway and Sweden negotiate and construct their histories, identities, social orders and cultural practices, as well as their ontological securities.
