Nordic Colonialism and the Global

Nordic Colonialism and the Global is a Nordic project consisting of series of workshops, funded by NOS-HS. These workshops advance transnational framings, understandings, and entanglements of colonialism in the Nordic context.

The workshops reflect the recent rise of scholarly and public interest in colonial histories and postcolonial presents in the Nordic region by fostering international collaboration and exchange of ideas. They investigate how colonialism has been manifested in the historical experience and contemporary identities in the Nordic region and beyond. They investigate also, what kind of influence it has had on the definitions of nationhood, the society at large, and on group and individual identity.
