‘A Rape of the Earth’: Sámi Feminists Against Mines
21 mars 2023 kl 13:15 - 15:00
Ina Knobblock: At this seminar I will present a paper that is a Sámi feminist analysis of large-scale resource extraction in Sábme, the transnational Sámi territory spanning northern Fenno-Scandinavia and the Murmansk peninsula. Specifically, it centres on the mining of Indigenous land within the borders of the Swedish nation-state to explore the knowledge evolving from Sámi feminists engaged in the anti-mining struggle.
Here, I argue that Indigenous epistemes – i.e., the foregrounding of relationality and interdependency between land, humans, nonhuman beings, and the natural environment – are foundational to the research participants’ struggles against mining in Sábme. From within a Sámi knowledge system, mining entails fracturing the relational web of connection. Consequently, mining represents a multi-generational threat against the survival of Sámi body lands and life-worlds.
Plats: The seminar will take place at Várdduo in Fatmomakke, NBET floor 4 and at zoom. If you want to participante via zoom, please sign up below and a zoom link will be sent out the day before the seminar.
