Abstract [en]

This graphic novel is the documentation of Places, People, Stories, a conference held at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, 28–30 September 2011. The conference was the culmination of the research project Places as Stories (see page 31) and attracted more than 175 participants from around the world, including Scandinavia, United Kingdom, USA, Japan, Argentina, Israel, India, the Marshall Islands and Australia. A wide spectrum of disciplines was represented including Anthropology, Archaeology, Architecture, Art, Business Studies, Design, Heritage Studies, History, Human Geography, Literature, Media Studies, Pedagogics, Religious Studies and Tourism Studies. Professionals working in the education, landscape and heritage sectors were also invited. The conference, which took place at the conference centre Brofästet close to the Baltic Sea, just outside the centre of Kalmar, featured four keynote lectures and more than 120 academic presentations in 18 sessions as well as six artistic contributions. Some sessions may be published separately in traditional academic formats. The conference was supported by grants received from Linnaeus University and the Swedish National Heritage Board. During the three conference days a multidisciplinary discussion took place about human narratives and their connections to places. The aim was to create a platform for unpredictable dialogues between professional scientists and artists, while providing opportunities for personal encounters and conversations that may lead to a new understanding of how cultural phenomena emerge.
