Norwegian identity and cultural conflict
What is Norwegian culture? What is Norwegian identity? And how have they been shaped? These issues are addressed by Kaj Skagen in his book Norge, vårt Norge. What we perceive as “Norwegianness” has been created from the clash between metaphysics and social radicalism, he claims.
Skagen talks in this presentation about the intellectual and ideological debates which laid the basis for modern Norway, and what developments threaten Norwegian identity today.
