Prof. Dr Stephan Kessler (Greifswald): Defining the Baltic Sea Area

The idea for this lecture comes from the practical work in the International Research Training Group “Baltic Peripeties” and the IFZO project FragTrans, whose research is particularly concerned with the Baltic Sea region, its delimitation and coherence. Often, however, researchers have to critically question their ideas about this space. Research on urban geography and the formation of metropolises that have no direct contact with the Baltic Sea, for instance, frequently raises questions about the legitimacy of the label ‘Baltic’.
