Title Violence and the Re-discovery of Place
Author Povrzanovic Frykman, Maja
Editor Frykman, Jonas ; Niedermüller, Peter
Date 2003
English abstract
Violence imposed on a place bears not only the implicit challenge to the identities associated with it, but it also provokes responses related to a sense of place. In the context of war, place suddenly matters in a more direct and more intense way. The uniqueness of the place based primarily on the social value it has for people becomes visible and reflected upon as concrete and at one with action and thought. In this article, personal narratives on war experiences in the 1990s by the civilians in Dubrovnik, are related to Edward S. Casey’s propositions about every place being encultured and every culture being implaced. The tension is explored, between being “Europeans” and being “war victims” – two types of place-bound identity.
