The Coast as Arena for Swedish Modernity

Författare

  • Tomas Germundsson

Summary, in English

The perspective in the paper is the coast as a place for health, leisure, and recreation, and it takes its examples from southern Sweden and the city of Malmö. In Malmö the coast has been an essential and integrated part of the city’s business and image for centuries. It has been utilised and physically re-moulded for different purposes. By looking at the city coast from these perspectives, it is my aim to discuss in what way this landscape could be understood as an out-come of changing political ideology, modern planning discourse, body politics, and every-day life in the socially stratified city.
