Encountering "the Other" in the North: Colonial histories in early modern northern Sweden
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Archaeology.
2018 (English)In: Facing Otherness in Early Modern Sweden: Travel, Migration and Material Transformations, 1500-1800 / [ed] Magdalena Naum & Fredrik Ekengren, Woodbridge: The Boydell Press , 2018, p. 209-228Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter explores Swedish colonial and missionary projects in Sápmi (in present-day

northern Sweden) in the 17th century, with a special focus on encounters with the indigenous

Sami population, and the consequences for relationships between “Swedish” and

“Sami” identity, culture and history today. Early modern colonial history in northern

Sweden is in general afforded little recognition in Sweden. However, it is a history of

great importance to many people today, with connections to present-day conflicts over

land and cultural rights. Early modern views on the Sami have had a great impact on

later representations of Sami identity, culture and religion. There is a need to analyse

critically this history of “Us” and “Them” in the north. How can archaeology contribute

to a more complex understanding of the colonial histories and encounters in Sápmi and

northern Sweden in the early modern period?
