Description :
The article presents a theoretical approach to the empirical reconstruction of cultural-spatial change, building on knowledge sociology and social constructivism. A model is presented, based on the assumption that cultural-spatial change in European border areas occurs within a process of interaction and communication between different cultures which have their own specific knowledge systems and related social practices. Border regions are regarded as “spaces with opportunities” that provide particular opportunity structures for different cultures moving towards each other.
