Spring program!

We have discussed the spring program and have had many good suggestion on themes and topics. We will continue according to the alternation system established in the fall in that readings of seminal texts alternate with manuscripts from participants. As done in the fall, there will be room for two papers in each session.

The meetings will be held every three weeks, the first meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 21:st at 16:15 was unfortunately cancelled and held to a week later.

The meeting schedule is as follows:

28.1.┬áDuring the spring session, we will be shifting focus from legal pluralism to the rights discourse. To kick things off, Reetta will lead the first discussion beginning from Jane Cowan’s seminal (oh yes, I have learned a new word) text Culture and Rights after Culture and Rights.

11.2. we will discuss Reetta Toivanen’s paper on indigenous rights and the Sami movement. NB: due to the preceding workshop (in Finnish), on Sami issues at the faculty room P545, the start time will be 17:15!

4.3. text TBA

25.3. We will have two papers to discuss, one by Mari Tapaninen: TBA, the other by Miia Halme-Tuomisaari: “Anthropologically Blonde at the UN: Methodological Reflections of a Conspicuous Ethnographer”

15.4. For the last session, we will have a quest speaker TBA

Texts are again distributed via the colloquium noodle site, but due to the issues they will henceforth be added to the emails as well. They will be available roughly one week before each session. To get access, one needs to contact Susanne Dahlgren to be included in the list. If you have signed up on WebOodi, you will be added automatically.

The meetings are during the spring at the Porthania 5th floor coffee room between 16:15-17:45.

And, like before, this page is being continually updated.
