First presented at a conference in Odense, Denmark, in November 2012, the 15 essays in this volume consider how Schleswig-Holstein has been a contested region between Denmark and Germany throughout history, and the status and identity of these regions. German and Danish historians and researchers address the historical context; how history, historical monuments, and historical heritage have been used in the 19th and 20th centuries in Schleswig and the Danish-German borderland in the fight for identity and ownership of the region; dynastic issues in the Middle Ages and 18th and 19th centuries; economic and social interests in the mid-19th century; national issues, conflicts, and nationalism in the Middle Ages and 1848; the fortification of Dannevirke as a national symbol; practical, administrative, and religious aspects, such as the health and mobility of the inhabitants of Schleswig, church administration, and the status of Heligoland; and further implications of the contest for Schleswig-Holstein.
