Abstract [en]

Andreas Hesselius and Pehr Kalm both spent time in eastern North America during the first half of the 18th century. Both came with an ardent desire to observe and learn about the natural environment and inhabitants of the region. Both produced writings, in the form of journals that have proved immensely useful to subsequent scholars. Yet their writings also display differences that illuminate the epistemological and sociological underpinnings of their observations, and which had consequences for their encounters with foreign environments. Hesselius, who served as pastor to the Swedish congregation in Philadelphia from 1712 to 1724, described his experiences and observations with what we might call a historical awareness, while Kalm, known as the first of Linnaeus's students to travel to the New World, primarily offered dehistoricized and denarrativized taxonomic ethnographic descriptions. At first glance, Hesselius and Kalm appear to illustrate perfectly Michel Foucault's description of the difference between Renaissance and classical epistemologies. Kalm's disembodied and decontextualized representations fit well with Foucault's description of natural history in the classical age as consisting 'of undertaking a meticulous examination of things themselves horizontal ellipsis and then of transcribing what it has gathered in smooth, neutralized, and faithful words'. This article, however, points out that while Hesselius and Kalm arrive at similar descriptions of plants and other-than-human beings by employing different methodologies, when it comes to describing indigenous peoples their respective methodologies lead to radically different approaches, with Hesselius writing them into history, while Kalm relegates them to ethnology in the sense of savage 'peoples without histories'.

Abstract [en]

In the late 1920s, a group of young Kiowa artists, pursuing their education at the University of Oklahoma, encountered Swedish-born art professor Oscar Brousse Jacobson (1882–1966). With Jacobson’s instruction and friendship, the Kiowa Six, as they are now known, ignited a spectacular movement in American Indian art. Jacobson, who was himself an accomplished painter, shared a lifelong bond with group member Stephen Mopope (1898–1974), a prolific Kiowa painter, dancer, and musician. Painting Culture, Painting Nature explores the joint creativity of these two visionary figures and reveals how indigenous and immigrant communities of the early twentieth century traversed cultural, social, and racial divides.

Painting Culture, Painting Nature is a story of concurrences. For a specific period, immigrants such as Jacobson and disenfranchised indigenous people such as Mopope transformed Oklahoma into the center of exciting new developments in Indian art, which quickly spread to other parts of the United States and to Europe. Jacobson and Mopope came from radically different worlds, and were on unequal footing in terms of power and equality, but they both experienced, according to author Gunlög Fur, forms of diaspora or displacement. Seeking to root themselves anew in Oklahoma, the dispossessed artists fashioned new mediums of compelling and original art.

Although their goals were compatible, Jacobson’s and Mopope’s subjects and styles diverged. Jacobson painted landscapes of the West, following a tradition of painting nature uninfluenced by human activity. Mopope, in contrast, strove to capture the cultural traditions of his people. The two artists shared a common nostalgia, however, for a past life that they could only re-create through their art.

Whereas other books have emphasized the promotion of Indian art by Euro-Americans, this book is the first to focus on the agency of the Kiowa artists within the context of their collaboration with Jacobson. The volume is further enhanced by full-color reproductions of the artists’ works and rare historical photographs.

Abstract [en]

How were relationships negotiated across ethnic, racial, and gendered boundaries in the American West in the 1920s and 1930s? Were friendships possible? What limits shaped them? In 1927, four Kiowa students enrolled at Oklahoma University as students of Swedish-born Professor of Fine Arts Oscar B. Jacobson. This article investigates the relationship between Jeanette Berry, wife of one of the Kiowa artists, and Sophie Brousse, Jacobson's French wife. It focuses on an incident when Berry presented Brousse with a gift of earrings. Placing this gift within a discussion of friendships between strangers illuminates the lines of culture, meaning, and power that separated these women. This relationship had individual ramifications but also formed part of their respective attempts to establish positions and maintain culture within Oklahoma where both American Indians and immigrants faced changing and volatile conditions. Their encounter highlights issues of class as well as ethnicity and culture.

Abstract [en]

Brydon, Forsgren, and Fur’s Concurrent Imaginaries, Postcolonial Worlds demonstrates the value of reading for concurrences in situating discussions of archives, voices, and history in colonial and postcolonial contexts. Starting with the premise that our pluriversal world is constructed from concurrent imaginaries yet the role of concurrences has seldom been examined, the collection brings together case studies that confirm the productivity of reading, looking, and listening for concurrences across established boundaries of disciplinary or geopolitical engagement. Contributors working in art history, sociology, literary, and historical studies bring examples of Nordic colonialism together with analyses of colonial practices worldwide. The collection invites uptake of the study of concurrences within the humanities and in interdisciplinary fields such as postcolonial, cultural, and globalization studies.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter the already and always transnational links of indigenous peoples are focused as they became visible and utilized in 20th century European and international politics. An increasing academic focus on classification and developmental determinism painted indigenous peoples as static societies that hinted at European prehistory, and as the century progressed, stood in need of protection and special support in attempts to bring them into modernity. As relics of the past indigenous peoples - at least in certain parts of the world - were also perceived with nostalgia for an idyllic life lost in the rapid and ruthless scramble for industrialization. Indigenous peoples, however, were never just foils for European and Western imagination. Sami people in northern Scandinavia spanned four nation states, advocated for rights and forged transnational alliances already in the beginning of the 20th century. After World War II contacts increased between indigenous peoples in the north of the European continent and in North America. Individuals and groups crossed boundaries and travelled for leisure, for the purpose of labour opportunities, and in order to influence the political process. An international language of indigeneity grew out of these contacts, and demonstrated that while on the one hand marginalized and victims of Europe's colonial and imperial reach, indigenous peoples were also and always agents of change and reflection in a manner that both contributes to and challenges understandings of cosmopolitanism.

Abstract [sv]

I ett tal på urfolksdagen 1998 bad den svenska jordbruksministern om ursäkt för hur

Sverige behandlat samerna. Det är idag allt mer vanligt att regeringar och organisationer

ber om ursäkt för handlingar i det förflutna, både i Sverige och runt om i världen.

Sannings- och försoningskommissioner söker komma till rätta med arvet efter historiska

övergrepp genom att lyfta fram dem i ljuset. Men vad innebar egentligen denna

ursäkt till samerna och för vems räkning talade ministern? Artikeln behandlar ursäkter

som framförts till andra urfolk, vad som skrevs i media i anslutning till att den svenska

ursäkten framfördes och hur den sen diskuterats och använts. En motivering till behovet

av ursäkter söks i förflutna handlingar som betraktas i ljuset av samtida internationella

överenskommelser om urfolks rättigheter. En slutsats är att en verkningsfull ursäkt måste

ta konsekvensen av hela kedjan mellan oförrätter, ånger, gottgörelse och en förändrad

relation mellan grupper. För svensk-samiskt vidkommande borde det innebära att frågor

om rättelse för bland annat tvångsförflyttningar och förnekandet av samiskt språk och

kultur måste diskuteras och internationella konventioner skrivas under och förbättras.

Sådana handlingar skulle ha djupgående inflytande på nationens historia och tjäna som

modell för relationer till andra nationella minoriteter. Den nya berättelse som en ursäkt

innebär, möjliggör en framtid som inte är förutbestämd av det förflutna.

Abstract [en]

This article examines representations of American Indians in a Swedish family magazine from the 1860s/1870s, tying these ‘Indian stories’ to perceptions carried by emigrants to the Americas. It argues that these representations conveyed a certain notion of the colonial process that allowed Swedes to both participate in and disavow the more unsavoury aspects of what the magazine called ‘race wars’. An emerging discourse of innocence connected popular images with debates about emigration and scholarship in racial biology, which allowed both Swedes and Swedish-Americans to view themselves as modern and unconnected to the burdens of a colonial past.

About the book

The next volume in the Common Threads book series, Immigrant Identity and the Politics of Citizenship assembles fourteen articles from the Journal of American Ethnic History. The chapters discuss the divisions and hierarchies confronted by immigrants to the United States, and how these immigrants shape, and are shaped by, the social and cultural worlds they enter. Drawing on scholarship of ethnic groups from around the globe, the articles illuminate the often fraught journey many migrants undertake from mistrusted Other to sometimes welcomed citizen.
