International conference on Johan Turi

The University of Tromsø organizes a conference on Johan Turi to celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of the publication of Johan Turi’s first book Muitalus sámiid birra in 1910, on March 25.

The conference will feature presentations on Johan Turi’s relations with Emilie Demant Hatt and other figures important in the publication of Muitalus. The presentations will also address the significance of Turi’s book as a source of knowledge concerning Sámi culture and will supply background information on the new English translation.

I will talk about Storytelling as a source and resource to knowledge and discuss the role of Johan Turi and storytelling in a contemporary context.
