Géocultures. Méthodologies russes sur l’Arctique
The purpose of this book is to show the specifics of the formation of cultural landscapes and geocultural images of Northern and Arctic cities in the context of the concept of post-urbanism. The ontological and phenomenological category of cold, which is key for understanding this specificity, has a decisive influence on the formation of both material and expressive (mental) environments and identities of the inhabitants of Northern cities. The image of cold can be considered as an important component of the symbolic capital of the Northern and Arctic cities, as well as a field of implementation and struggle of various post-colonial practices.
