Abstract [sv]

Meänkieli är ett av Sveriges fem nationella minoritetsspråk i vilket forskning kring kulturella aspekter är av begränsat områdesfokus. De politiska ändamål som uttrycks i lagen om nationella minoriteter och minoritetsspråk, ämnar skapa en språklig- och kulturell revitalisering. En ny rapport påvisar att kunskapsbristerna är stora dels gällande anspråk minoriteter efterfrågar, dels hur myndigheter arbetar med minoritetsrättigheter. Ett ledord i lagen är främjandet och bevarandet av minoritetsgruppers kulturarv.  Till skillnad från andra minoritetsgrupper urskiljer meänkieli inte en lika säregen kultur som exempelvis jiddisch eller romani-chib. Så vad utmärker meänkielis kulturarv utöver språket? Genom en kvalitativ generationsstudie undersöktes hur kvinnor, med anknytning till meänkieli, skapar mening i en kulturell kontext. I detta belyses hur generationsskillnader kan ta sig uttryck. Studien visar på att det förekommer liknande kulturella markörer bland deltagarna, och att en kulturell- eller språklig revitalisering inte är särskilt påtaglig bland grupperna

Abstract [en]

Abstract: Meänkieli is one of Sweden's five national minority languages in which research on culture is of limited area focus. The political purpose, expressed in the law on national minorities and minority languages, intends to create a linguistic and cultural revitalization. A new report shows that knowledge gaps are large, both within claims minorities ask for, and also how agencies are working with minority rights. A key word in the law, is the promotion and preservation of minority cultural heritage. Unlike other minoritygroups, meänkieli does not distinguishes a well known particular culture, such as yiddish or romani-chib. What distinguishes Meänkieli cultural heritage in addition to the language? Through a qualitative generational study, we examine how women related to meänkieli, create meaning in a cultural context, and highlights the generational differences that is manifested. The study shows that there are similar cultural markers among participants, and that a cultural- or language revitalization is not particularly striking among the groups.
