Dividing Lines, Connecting Lines: Europe's Cross-border Heritage, Part 618
Council of Europe Pub., 2004 - Business & Economics - 157 pages
This publication is part of a series produced in relation to the integrated project "Responses to violence in everyday life in a democratic society", and explores the concepts of cultural heritage and European identities. It contains a number of papers which consider links between cultural heritage and frontiers, both natural frontiers and imagined ones. The book points the way to deeper research into European identity and the history of relations between the cultural communities which are Europe's greatest asset. In doing so, it challenges us to rethink our concepts of heritage, territory and identity in new regional, transnational and European terms.
