The Midnight Sun Never Sets: An Email Conversation about Jazz, Race and National Identity in Denmark, Norway and Sweden
2014 (English)In: Afro-Nordic Landscapes: Equality and Race in Northern Europe / [ed] McEachrane, Michael, New York/London: Routledge, 2014, 1, 57-83 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
In Denmark, Norway and Sweden, jazz went from being seen as radically foreign to become a seamless part of domestic culture. The conversation traces that development and displays how the national identities of these countries were, and still are, bound up with notions of race, ethnicity and culture. Yet, as the conversation also makes clear, ultimately it is a development that defies racial, ethnic or national boundaries.
