Abstract [sv]

In our current research project, we investigate how and under what conditionsa narrating cultural heritage – narratives about and by immigrants – has been created and collected at the Nordic Museum. In this presentation we explore the procedures, conditions of their creation and content of three collections of narratives (viva voce interviews and written life stories) – archived at the Museum at different times from the beginning of the 1970s to 2015 – by and about persons categorised as immigrants. This was a period marked by the conversion of Sweden's self-perception as a homogeneous country with immigrants into that of a multicultural society. With intersectionality as a theoretical tool, we study how social categories such as nation, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class and generation are used in the materials, interview extracts and questionnaires to construct narratives of inclusion and exclusion in relation to Swedish society. We also present analyses of a few interviews and/or written life stories from the different collections in order to illustrate how normative social categories and positions are narrated, negotiated and/or resisted by the interviewed subjects in the collected and archived materials.
