Political, Linguistic, and Religious Boundaries as Distinctive Creative Space
Why New Ideas Are Generated in Border LandseBook - 2012
The term "Pogranichie" is the Russian language equivalent to the English term "borderland" and this work studies how borderlands serve as distinctively creative spaces for cultural exchange. The book studies how social interactions occur in post-soviet bloc countries that try to democratize, and presents a model for Eastern European development. If there is a lack of actorship in social processes and communication is broken off, then development cannot occur. The authors look at what circumstances promote agency and actorship which in turn changes the dynamic of the entire Pogranichie communit.
