2022 (English)In: To Take Us Lands Away: Essays in Honour of Margaret R. Hunt / [ed] Astrid Wendel-Hansen, Katarina Nordström, Francisca Hoyer, Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2022, p. 241-257Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

During the second half of the 18th century, west of the Forbidden Path – a trail going north from Philadelphia to Seneca territory in New York – Lenape, or Delaware, people faced the offer of conversion extended by Moravian missionaries, while pressured from all sides by European settler colonists. Moravian reports detail everyday activities and relations in Moravian mission towns and Delaware towns which the missionaries visit. Through these records I expand upon forms of dominance and authority within dispersed Lenape communities, and the complications and consequences of their encounter with European settler perceptions and expectations. Production of necessities, extensive diplomatic duties, and an increasingly volatile situation between different nations, Indigenous and European, in the period leading up to the American War of Independence forced all involved to reckon with different and cross-cutting orders of authority which makes it difficult to speak of any one form of dominance.

Abstract [en]

In 1874, Captain Jack’s riding (Modoc resistance leader) came to the Ethnographic Museum in Stockholm. How did the whip end up in a glass case in Sweden? What happened along its way across the Atlantic? What significance did it acquire and how did that change over time and space? Borderlands as cross-border relations emphasizes conceptual boundaries, fluidity and multiple identities. The whip twines together a history of colonialism; from its reminder of the Spanish introduction of the horse to its decontextualized enclosure in a museum showcase it offers an entry point for rethinking encounters between Swedes and American Indians.

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'.
