Le folklore comme instrument politique et arme idéologique

My book chapter about Folklore as political tool and ideological weapon has now been published in L’Image du Sápmi 2. My chapter gives a critical historical overview of examples where sámi traditional knowledge and folklore were used in the service of philology, lappology and other research traditions, as a political tool and an ideological weapon.

The book, edited by Kajsa Andersson (Örebro University) is a collection of contributions in French and English by scholars from diverse fields such as literature, archeology, linguistics, anthropology etc.

A Swedish version of my chapter – updated and written for a Swedish public – is to be published in Sápmi i ord och bild, by the same editor and forthcoming nest year.
