Unearthing Scandinavia’s Colonial Past
Author(s): Magdalena Naum
In the recent years colonialism has been a subject of debate and new research in Scandinavian historical and anthropological scholarship. This scholarship is scrutinizing the impact of colonial expansion on societies in Scandinavia as well as the role and participation of the Swedish and Danish kingdoms in the colonial enterprises. Drawing on this research, my paper will explore the background and consequences of this interest in Scandinavia’s colonial past; the ways it rewrites historical narratives of early modern Scandinavia and challenges existing paradigms and understandings of colonialism.
