The North as a place is often conceptualized via a combination of philosophical, cultural-sociological, imaginative, and political readings. Within this context, the articles presented in this EJM volume provide insights into the versatile and multi-faceted, yet likewise fragile relationship between humans and nature in this region. It is the aim of this collection to enhance discourses on global warming and climate change in Europe, especially its Nordic countries, and the United States; to open up musicology to studies of global climate through music; and to contribute to this newly emerging field of study within cultural theory, musicology, ethnomusicology, and sustainability studies.
