Owing to the numerous possibilities of linking countryside, author and narratives, Astrid Lindgren's Småland stands out as an exciting region in which to base a survey examining the interaction between the theme park and its surrounding area.
In Småland, it is not only the Astrid Lindgrens Verden Theme Park that stands out as thematic countryside. If one is acquainted with Astrid Lindgren's life and authorship, it becomes clear that it is almost impossible to visit Småland without simultaneously stepping into the worlds of the author. This applies particularly to the areas around Vimmerby, which is Lindgren's place of birth.
Thus Astrid Lindgren's Småland corresponds in many ways to the well-known analyses of the thematic countryside's power to banish traditional countryside to mere crossroads in a global network where time and space become insignificant.
In this article, however, classical ideological critical forms of understanding are set aside, in favour of an investigation of more phenomenologically inspired frames of interpretation. Instead of focusing on structural readings of the theme park's effect on the local surroundings, the limelight is directed towards the dimensions of experience and the thematic countryside's creative and cultural relocalising potential.
