Keywords: Anachronic (Critique Of) Baltic, Physical And Cultural Geography Of Liminality And Frontier Zones, Intersection Of Regions
AbstractThere is no simple definition of the Baltic. Previous attempts to use the criteria derived from considerations of physical or cultural geography have not proved full adequate. This does not mean that there should be recourse to the dubious idea of the anachronic, or its equivalent, the “atopic”. Rather than being regarded as liminal or a frontier zone in relation to other cultural or geographical regions, the Baltic might be conceived as representing their intersection.
