The data for the research reported in this paper were derived from a longitudinal dataset covering the 19th and 20th ...
  • Emigrants in the Historical Population Register of Norway 

    Thorvaldsen, Gunnar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-12)
    Both the completed transcription of our emigration protocols, the construction of the national Historical Population Register, and other developments make an article about methods for studying emigration from Norway through the last couple of centuries topical. It starts by discussing the Norwegian and American source material where we can identify the emigrants’ absence from Norway. It in particular ...

  • In the wake of the wake. An investigation of the impact of the Storegga tsunami on the human settlement of inner Varangerfjord, northern Norway 

    Blankholm, Hans Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-02)
    The Storegga tsunami (8175-8120 cal. BP, Bondevik et al., 2012) has often been described as a catastrophe spelling major disaster and demographic decline for the people in the danger zone. More nuance is needed if we are to understand the effects. Most studies have had a supra-regional or regional character; less effort seems to have put into studies at the sub-regional level. The Norwegian coast, ...

In the first part of the article, I will discuss the definition of evolution and describe the Modern Synthesis (or neo-Darwinian theory). In the next part, I will consider various evolutionary perspectives in CSR, including evolutionary ...
  • Dorset, Norse, or Thule? Technological transfers, marine mammal contamination, and AMS dating of spun yarn and textiles from the Eastern Canadian Arctic 

    Smith, Michele Hayeur; Smith, Kevin P.; Nilsen, Gørill (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-14)
    Yarn and textiles recovered from prehistoric Dorset and Thule culture sites in the Eastern Canadian Arctic have raised questions about the extent and timing of indigenous and Norse interaction in the New World, whether the yarn represents technological transfers between Greenland's Norse settlers and the Dorset, or whether these Indigenous Arctic groups had independent fiber technologies before ...
  • Armaments and ornaments: mate-guarding and the evolutionary roots of religion 

    Czachesz, Istvan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-09-13)
    This article explores the connection between sexual selection and religion, locating the origins of religious behavior in mate guarding after the transition to terrestrial life in <i>Homo erectus</i> 1.8 million years ago. An important consequence of the transition was the emergence of a polygynous, multiple-family social structure, which gave rise to mate guarding as a successful strategy. Further, ...

  • Regional and Global Readers: Transnational Approaches to Book History and Literary Sociology in the Nordic countries 

    Hansen, Henning (Lecture; Forelesning, 2018-03-16)
    This paper explores the historiography of History of Reading in a Nordic context. The populations of the Nordic countries were probably the first in the world to ascend to mass literacy, and widespread basic reading ability was achieved by the early 1700s. The Nordic countries have always been dependent on the import of literature, both in translation and in the original language. In that sense, the ...
  • The Role of Conspiracy Mentality and Paranormal Beliefs in Predicting Conspiracy Beliefs Among Neopagans 

    Dyrendal, Asbjørn; Kennair, Leif Edward Ottesen; Lewis, James R (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-27)
    Recent studies on conspiracy thinking has concluded that the strongest predictor of the tendency towards conspiratorial thinking is a one-dimensional construct-conspiracy mentality-that is relatively stable over time and valid across cultures. Lantian et al. (2016) found that a single, elaborate question can work as a measure of conspiracy beliefs. We assess the validity of this question for an ...
  • Om Norske krigsdekorasjoner 

    Bones, Stian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    <i>Innledning</i>: Formålet med dekorasjonsprosjektet og med boka Norske krigsdekorasjoner, er å undersøke om det er grupper eller personer som ikke er dekorert som fortjent på bakgrunn av hemmelighold, manglende kunnskap eller politiske forhold. Boka gir ingen oppsummerende eller syntetiserende konklusjon om dette hovedspørsmålet, men i forordet slås det fast: «Prosjektgruppens anbefaling er at ...
  • Theory Adrift: The Matter of Archaeological Theorizing 

    Pétursdóttir, Þóra; Olsen, Bjørnar Julius (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-10)
    At a possible transition towards a ‘flat’, post-human or new-materialist environment, many have suggested that archaeological theory and theorizing is changing course; turning to metaphysics; leaning towards the sciences; or, even is declared dead. Resonating with these concerns, and drawing on our fieldwork on a northern driftwood beach, this article suggests the need to rethink fundamental notions ...

    The article discusses the long-term effects of the Russian revolution on the Norwegian labour movement, primarily the dominant Norwegian Labour Party. This influence will be assessed from two aspects: its relationship to the Soviet Communist Party, and to the state it created. To reveal the content of and changes in the Norwegian Labour Party in relation to these two variables, it is necessary ...

Generally speaking, Putin’s approach to history aims to use historical knowledge as a vehicle for the promotion of national unity, following the long period of disruption and decline after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. It is ...
  • Om vegetasjonsforstyrrelser: Konsekvenser for bevaringen av arkeologisk kontekstinformasjon i norske jordsmonn 

    Jørgensen, Erlend Kirkeng (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    Jordsmonnet utgjør deler av konteksten for arkeologiske data og danner i mange tilfeller selve matrisen som dataene inngår i. Ved avsetningen av menneskelige aktivitetsspor sørger akkumuleringen av nye jordlag for en overlagring av aktivitetssporene. Jordsmonnets evne til å «forsegle» fortidige aktivitetsspor er en grunnleggende forutsetning for arkeologien. For det første fører jordsmonnets forsegling ...

  • Svøpt i myra - Synspunkter på Skjoldehamnfunnets etniske og kulturelle tilknytning 

    Svestad, Asgeir (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    In 1936 an extraordinary find of a clothed skeleton wrapped in a blanket and covered with birch bark appeared in a bog at Skjoldehamn on Andøya Island. The wrapped body was laid on a reindeer pelt, which in turn was placed on sticks of birch. The grave dates to the 11th century, probably the later half. Compared with relevant Norse, Sámi, and Christian graves and burial customs, the Skjoldehamn grave ...
  • Nærvær og presentisme: om synet på fortiden i nyere historieteori 

    Bangstad, Torgeir Rinke (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    Much recent theorizing in philosophy of history has revolved around the idea of enduring, persistent pasts as opposed to the proto-modern sense of time which presupposes a neat break between the absent past and the present. This article draws on examples from memory studies, archaeology, art history, law and theory of history to explain the idea of the persistence of the past, and to suggest ...
