We invite to an opening workshop for the project Gender in Sápmi. What is the current research status? How should research be done? What are the research needs?
Gender in Sápmi is a project that crosses borders and disciplines. It needs to be studied through different methods and fields, opening for text studies, fieldwork, archive studies, and narratives, to name a few. The project has a local dimension, with the explicit connection to Sámi communities, a national dimension, meant both in an overarching Sámi context and in the Nordic contexts, and an international dimension, with the global community of Indigenous peoples and research and of gender research.
A main aim of this project is to establish this as a field of research at UiT. Collaboration is a key to achieve this. Thus, we aim to include participants from different academic institutions and from Sámi institutions across the borders. Reciprocity, relationality, and participation are important methodological values.
In this online-workshop, we invite interested scholars, students, institutions and stakeholders to join in on the conversation about gender in Sápmi, and about how research can and should be done.
The workshop is the first arrangement within the project, and is aiming to:
Participation is free of charge. Registration is due on 1 March. The workshop language is English.
