With a radically changing world, cultural identity and images have emerged as one of the most challenging issues in the social and cultural sciences. These changes provide an occasion for a thorough reexamination of cultural, historical, political, and economic aspects of society. The INOR (Iceland and Images of the North) group is an interdisciplinary group of Icelandic and non-Icelandic scholars whose recent research on contemporary and historical images of Iceland and the North seeks to analyze the forms these images assume, as well as their function and dynamics. The twenty-one articles in this book allow readers to seize the variety and complexity of the issues related to images of Iceland. The research project is led by Sumarliði Ísleifsson of the Reykjavík Academy, Iceland, where most of the participants are based, and Daniel Chartier of the International Laboratory for the Comparative Multidisciplinary Study of Representations of the North, based at the Université du Québec à Montréal. The Droit au pôle series, published by the Presses de l’Université du Québec, disseminates literary and cultural studies that enable readers to understand and interpret the imaginary of the North, Winter, and the Arctic.
