The Societal Dimensions of Sámi Research

The website for The Societal Dimension of Sámi Research together with Tromsø University is now up and will continue to be updated with research activities and publications. The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

Within this project, I have the responsibility for a Work Package about “Nordic Media as a Field for Negotiating Scholarly Knowledge on the Sámi” that explores how knowledge, produced by scholars working with Sámi issues, is articulated, transformed or omitted through the channels of digital media. How do images and discourses in media affect researchers’ focus and results, and thus the professional and disseminated understandings of Sámi pasts and presents?

Beside this responsible for a work package, I will of course contribute with publications, participation to research activities and editor.
