About the event

Hanna Åberg will talk about

Walks through the paradoxes of nostalgia and rural gentrification

Rural discourse is increasingly concerned with rural gentrification, amenity-driven migration and displacement to more attractive parts of the countryside. With this comes a recognition of the centrality of landscape, both as a driver of gentrification and as something affected by it. In this talk I'll be exploring the paradox of how people move to a particular area because they are attracted to that very landscape, while at the same time reshaping it by moving there. I'm going to use the example of the island of Gotland in Sweden, and in particular three remote areas that the local municipality has identified as being at risk of gentrification. Through three walking workshops, I seek to better understand how the landscape has been shaped by gentrification from the perspective of both long-term and part-time residents.
