SAMFORSK

Research on Sámi Research and on Representation of Sámi Cultural Heritage

Our people


About

Recently, the scholarly gaze has been increasingly turned from the Indigenous subject to researchers who study the Indigenous, and to the societal processes that have regulated the production of such knowledge in the past and the present. This turn has contributed to an expanding body of ‘research on research’ within Indigenous and postcolonial studies internationally, and produced clusters of research in histories of scholarly disciplines such as anthropology and history of science. Our research group discuss, read and produce exhibitions, multimedia, scientific and educational text about these topics.
