Sámi research in a new media landscape

Last week, I participated to the Research Day of Vaartoe, the Center for Sámi Research at Umeå University (more here: program árjepluovve) – where I am affiliated and conduct a project.

I presented my upcoming project on Sámi research in a new media landscape, focusing on how authorities, influences and collaborations shape and are shaped in research. It is part of a larger project funded by the Research Council of Norway. The project, The Societal Dimensions of Sámi Research, is a collaboration between researchers at Tromsö University Museum, the Giellagas Institute in Oulu, and other scholars at universities and museums in Sweden, Norway anf Finland led by Jukka Nyssönen, Tromsö.
