Project: Borderlands of Swedish-Indigenous Encounters
Swedish-Indigenous encounters focuses on the concurrent histories of Swedish and other Scandinavian emigrants and Indigenous nations in North America during the 19th and 20th centuries. What did emigrants know and experience as they became part of the dispossession of indigenous peoples, and how did knowledge circulate back and forth across the Atlantic? How did the different indigenous nations view and relate to Swedish settlers? The research is connected to the international network “Swedish-American Borderlands” .
