Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningfagfællebedømt

This article deals with cultural encounters as a creative dimension of co-production with the Swedish-Danish series The Bridge as example. Focus is on reception in Denmark, Sweden and UK), on audiences and demographics, and cultural negotiations and discourses of reception in newspapers and social media in the different national contexts. Reception of the series shows a fascination with Nordic Noir as a genre, and the transnational cultural encounters with the series also involve social, political and cultural themes and exchange of different norms and life styles. Such transnational mediated encounters relate to universal dimensions of stories, but also initiate a cultural encounter between ‘us and them’. Cultural encounters are important, since they can help people understand each other in a deeper way, and enhance global diversity.
