Kubb: Local identity and global connectedness in a Gotland parish
Gotland University, School of the Humanities and Social Science.
2008 (English)In: Refereed papers from the 4th International Small Island Cultures Conference, The Turku archipelago, June 17th-20th 2008, 2008, 17-27 p.Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this paper I will discuss intersections between Rone, in the island of Gotland, Sweden, an old lawn game called ‘kubb’, and a number of global issues of the 21st Century, such as islandness, remoteness, tradition and heritage production, cultural branding, entrepreneurship and the quest for new and authentic experiences. My paper is about marginalization, center periphery relations, and the role of cultural representations in the complex interplay between centers and peripheries. It also raises questions about the possible effects of the creative use of a specific cultural form in the production of local distinctiveness, visibility and attention. The paper is based on interviews and fieldwork in Rone 2004-2008.
