Abstract [en]

The English title of the current article, “The Melancholy of the Past and Its Possibilities: Erla Husgafvel's Smaland Diaspora,” provides an idealogical backdrop to the tangled emigration to Sweden in 1946 of the Finland-Swedish ethnologist Husgafvel. Leaving Finland so close to the end of the Finnish wars was for her, the staunch Ostrobothnian, patriot, and conservative folklorist, a troublesome enterprise. Settling in Mariannelund, the small southern Sweden city now famous mainly for hosting the filming of Astrid Lindgren's 'Emil in Lonneberga' in the early 1970's (for which Erla and Ekka Husgafvel's handmade candles were used) in 1948, turned into a Husgafvel fairytale of another kind than Lindgren's stories about the lives and customs of Swedish kids. I discuss the Husgafvel metamorphosis of their 'colonized' site into a thirty-year-long exilic exposition of Ostrobothnian peasant customs and a patriotic market place in support of disabled Finnish war veterans with invited villagers as initiates, participants, and customers.
