Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this essay, we offer an examination of Shetlandic Scandinavian-ness, as represented in three forms of cultural production, namely 1) the linguistic signs marking the Shetland landscape; 2) the fictional Shetland constructed in Robert Alan Jamieson’s novel Da Happie Land and 3) the merger of island culture and Nordic Noir drama in the Shetland TV series.
