Abstract [en]

How is Simrishamn? An essay about what a place is like for those who live there.


The aim of this essay is to analyze how inhabitants in Simrishamn experiencing and describes the place they chose to settle. The study is focused on one place, the small town Simrishamn, and the inhabitants who live there today. The main empirical material is based on interviews and surveys. I have used a phenomenological approach to describe people's experience of the place. Phenomenology studies the individual perspective on their world outside to clarify what emerges and the way in which it emerges. What the study reveals is how people relate to places by a place concept based on locality, performances and experience.

The first part of the essay should be read as background material. The second part is the presentation. The third part is a concluding discussion that includes results and a summary of the thesis.
