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.

Abstract [sv]

Att använda termen kolonialism om svensk expansion på Nordkalotten väcker

debatt inom akademin samt i lagstiftning och politik. Från och med 1600-talet

stärkte kyrkan och kronan sin närvaro i lappmarkerna, och i försöken att omvända

vad som betraktades som en hednisk och ociviliserad befolkning nedtecknade

svenska präster och protokollskrivare samiska berättelser och anspråk. Genom

dessa dokument framträder en historia om kolonisation och kulturmöten i Sápmi.

Denna artikel berättar om hur samer och svenskar påverkades av möten under

1600- och 1700-talen och bygger på källmaterial som domböcker, prästberättelser

och reseskildringar. I fokus står kronans och kyrkans allt starkare intrång i samiskt

område genom gruvverksamhet och etablering av marknadsplatser dit handel,

tingsförrättningar och kyrkliga ärenden koncentrerades. Särskild betoning läggs på

den kyrkliga organisationen och de krav den ställde på samer. Genom kyrkan nådde

kronans krav in i varje enskild samisk individs liv och innebar allvarliga ingrepp i den

samiska livsvärlden. Samiska reaktioner innefattade försök att begränsa den information

som gavs till svenskar om samisk kultur och tro, såväl som aktivt motstånd

genom att vägra sända barn till skolan eller genom att flytta över gränsen till Norge.

Särskilt tydligt märks konflikten mellan samiskt och svenskt i kyrkans och kronans

ansträngningar att kontrollera de samiska äktenskapen.
