  • Refusal – opening otherwise forms of research 

    Gross, Lena; Mashreghi, Sepandarmaz; Söderman, Emma (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-14)
    An increasing interest towards researching other forms of knowledges is taking place, expanding the boundaries of knowledge to include forms that have been historically marginalised, negated, and neglected by the Western academy. Parallel to this, we have identified a rising critique of how voices marginalized by colonial modes of academic knowledge production are included, through a single-sided ...
  • Historical and political perspectives on Sámi and inclusive school systems in Norway 

    Keskitalo, Pigga Päivi Kristiina; Olsen, Torjer Andreas (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019-05)
    The aim of this chapter is to introduce Norway’s inclusive education policies for two separate school systems: the national Norwegian and the Sámi systems. This chapter is based on research done in Norway on its national and Sámi schools and their curricula. Norway is an interesting example when it comes to indigenous education and national schools, as state policies on diversity and minority and ...
  • Kolonial maskulinitet, kjønnet vold og nybyggerkolonialisme i Canada 

    Gross, Lena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022)
    10. mars 2022 ble Tytiana Janvier funnet død i et hjem i Lac La Biche i den canadiske provinsen Alberta etter å ha blitt meldt savnet av familien dagen før. Hun hadde gått til en bensinstasjon i byen for å ta en dusj. Bostedet hennes, en slags container utenfor byen som var opprettet som nødløsning for hjemløse, hadde ikke innlagt vann. Tytiana kom aldri tilbake. Hun ble 21 år.
  • Om departemental politisk spagat og folkerettens kulturvern 

    Broderstad, Else Grete (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022)
    Utgangspunktet for denne artikkelen er Kalvvatnan-saken i det sørsamiske området. I 2016 stoppet Olje- og energidepartementet planene om å bygge et vindkraftverk på et område brukt av reindriften. Folkerettslige bestemmelser av betydning for urfolk og særlig artikkel 27 i FNs konvensjon om sivile og politiske rettigheter spilte en avgjørende rolle for at departementet avslo å gi konsesjon til ...
  • The Agencies of the 'Co-Opted': Indigenous Peoples Organisations and Contestation of International Indigenous Rights Norms in Russia 

    Peeters, Marina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-04-18)
    The article untangles the relationship between Indigenous Peoples organisations (ipo s) and the Russian government in domestic and international political forums over the 1990s-2020s. It links two debates on co-optation and Indigenous peoples’ rights norms contestation, offering a more nuanced view of them as complex, incremental, and dynamic processes in the Russian authoritarian regime. By proceeding ...
  • Inclusion as indigenisation? Sámi perspectives in teacher education 

    Somby, Hege Merete; Olsen, Torjer Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-10-02)
    The Norwegian educational system is in the process of recognising and incorporating the rights of the Sámi as an Indigenous people. This transition will place new and challenging demands on teacher education programmes. The international goal within the field of inclusive education has been to give all children and youth equal opportunities for education, as exemplified by the UN Sustainable ...
  • Undervisning om samiske temaer i skolen - betydninga av kompetanse og urfolksperspektiv for en inkluderende praksis 

    Evju, Kristin; Olsen, Torjer Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-08-26)
    Skolen legger føringer for undervisning om samisk historie, språk, kultur, samfunn og rettigheter. I denne artikkelen undersøker vi erfaringer med disse temaene gjennom intervjuer med lærere fra seks ulike skoler i Norge; tre i Nord-Norge og tre på Østlandet. Lærernes praksis påvirkes av samspillet mellom blant annet læreplaner, læremidler, stedstilhørighet og perspektivering. Disse kan forstås som ...
  • “I shut it out”: expectant mothers’ fear of childbirth after a traumatic birth—a phenomenological study 

    Nordsletta, Anne-Hedvig Salmi; Sommerseth, Eva; Røseth, Idun; Olsen, Barbo; Forgaard, Anikken (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-19)
    Purpose: To describe expectant mothers’ experiences of fear of childbirth after a previous traumatic birth.<p> <p>Method: Qualitative, individual, in-depth interviews were conducted with eight expectant mothers between September and November 2020. Data were analysed using a descriptive phenomenological approach. <p>Results: We identified four interconnected constituents: Suboptimal midwifery ...
  • Urfolk og nasjonale minoriteter som tema i samfunnsfag 

    Olsen, Torjer Andreas; Evju, Kristin (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2022)
    Gjennom Kunnskapsløftet 2020 (LK2020) er urfolk og nasjonale minoriteter blitt løfta som temaområde i skolen. I dette kapittelet ser vi på hvilken plass samene og de nasjonale minoritetene har i overordna del og i samfunnsfaglæreplanen, og diskuterer hva dette har å si for undervisninga i samfunnsfag. Kapittelet har to hoveddeler. For det første undersøker vi læreplanen ut fra hva den sier om ...
  • Learning to aspire, aspiring to subvert: Namibian San youths' narratives about the future as mimetic work of resistance 

    Ninkova, Velina; Paksi, Attila (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-06)
    This article examines Namibian San youths’ aspirations about the future. Based on 170 essays, the analysis shows that disadvantaged San students aspire for future lives radically different from the lives of their families. We argue that San students have acquired the repertoire of “the good Namibian citizen” as a form of resistance through mimesis. These assertions create an opening for the projection ...
  • Cryptic impact: Visual detection of corona light and avoidance of power lines by reindeer 

    Tyler, N. J. C.; Stokkan, Karl-Arne; Hogg, Christopher; Nellemann, C; Vistnes, Arnt Inge (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-06)
    Assessing the impact of human development on animals is complicated by the fact that overt effects may have covert causes. Cryptic impacts (sensu Raiter et al. 2014) can arise where sensory stimuli to which species respond fall outside the human sensory range. Ultraviolet (UV) light, which is detected by a range of nonprimate mammals, is a potential example. We review evidence that dark-adapted eyes ...
  • Improving dialogue among researchers, local and indigenous peoples and decision-makers to address issues of climate change in the North 

    Callaghan, Terry V.; Kulikova, Olga; Rakhmanova, Lidia; Topp-Jørgensen, Elmer; Labba, Niklas; Kuhmanen, Lars-Anders; Kirpotin, Sergey; Shaduyko, Olga; Burgess, Henry; Rautio, Arja; Hindshaw, Ruth S.; Golubyatnikov, Leonid L.; Marshall, Gareth J.; Lobanov, Andrey; Soromotin, Andrey; Sokolov, Alexander; Sokolova, Natalia; Filant, Praskovia; Johansson, Margareta (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-12)
    The Circumpolar North has been changing rapidly within the last decades, and the socioeconomic systems of the Eurasian Arctic and Siberia in particular have displayed the most dramatic changes. Here, anthropogenic drivers of environmental change such as migration and industrialization are added to climateinduced changes in the natural environment such as permafrost thawing and increased frequency ...
  • Indigenizing Education: Historical Perspectives and Present Challenges in Sámi Education 

    Keskitalo, Pigga Päivi Kristiina; Olsen, Torjer Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021)
    This chapter discusses the most important issues of educational eras in different phases conducted by the Lutheran Church and four current national states where Sámi people live: Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russia. The early phases are described by the civilization process conducted by the Church between the 1600s and the 1850s and nationalism between the 1850s and the 1950s by the national states. ...
  • The state as a whiteman, the whiteman as a |'hun: Personhood, recognition, and the politics of knowability in the Kalahari 

    Ninkova, Velina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-02-24)
    The Ju|’hoansi of east central Namibia sometimes refer to the state as a whiteman and to the whiteman as a /’hun (steenbok). In this article, I contextualize these naming practices by tracing the history of colonial encounters on the fringes of the Western Kalahari through a small-scale animist perspective. I then discuss what this means for the concept of ‘recognition’, which I treat as a two-way ...
  • Integrating Traditional Medicine and Healing into the Ghanaian Mainstream Health System: Voices From Within 

    Kwame, Abukari (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-05-13)
    In this study, I employed interpretive ethnographic qualitative design to explore perceptions of and proposals from traditional healers, biomedical practitioners, and health care consumers regarding integrating traditional medicine and healing in Ghana. Data were gathered through focus groups, in-depth individual interviews, and qualitative questionnaires and analyzed thematically. The results ...

    Olsen, Torjer Andreas; Keskitalo, Pigga Päivi Kristiina; Virtanen, Pirjo (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2021-05-03)
  • Contemporary Indigenous Research within Sámi and Global Indigenous Studies Contexts 

    Virtanen, Pirjo; Olsen, Torjer Andreas; Keskitalo, Pigga Päivi Kristiina (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2021-05-03)
    This chapter addresses the genealogy of Indigenous studies, and how it is conceptualized and practised in the Sámi context. It discusses the inclusion of Indigenous knowledges and Indigenous ways of doing research in academia, as well as the role of Indigenous research methodologies in this effort. We link our chapter to larger academic Indigenous discussions on the concepts of ‘knowledge’, ...
