2014 (English)In: Sounds Like Theory: XII Nordic Theoretical Archaeology Group Meeting in Oulu 25.-28.4.2012 / [ed] Janne Ikäheimo, Anna-Kaisa Salmi & Tiina Äikäs, Helsinki: The Archaeological Society of Finland , 2014, 173-185 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The aim of this article is to explore aspects of the construction of entities, networks, and boundaries in archaeological research, focusing on the notions of Sápmi and Sámi archaeology primarily in Sweden. Sápmi, as a geographical as well as an ethnic, cultural, and political concept, can be seen as an interesting example of the interrelations between identity, politics, and the writing of the past in northernmost Europe. In the article, I discuss the notion of Sápmi and some of its historical and contemporary, political, and scientific contexts, and examine some of the debates and controversies concerning prehistory in Sápmi. What is the importance of archaeology in Sápmi, and what is the importance of Sápmi for archaeology?
