Supradisciplinary conversations on security, safety and resilience in the river valleys of Sábme – land of the Sámi

 

Since 2008 I combine the study of the (perceived) control of rivers through hydropower and the impacts of the hydropower exploitations during the 20th century within Sábme, the land of the indigenous Sámi people.

I apply a methodology which I refer to as supradisciplinarity. My own academic field being History of Science and Technology, the method involves collaboration with different academic disciplines, inviting co-researchers from other academic disciplines; amongst other water resource management, political science, and archeology. Furthermore, I integrate knowledges and people outside academia. This approach goes along with the argument by scholar Haraway, about “situated knowledges” and “partial perspectives” in regard to the production of scientific knowledge.[1]  In my interpretation, it also includes the necessity for me as a researcher, and Sámi, to take a stance and not pretend to be “neutral” in front of colonial destructive natural resource exploitation of Indigenous Peoples water- and landscapes. I will describe parts of this work, and the challenges it involves, along with the important work of healing that I find equally important.
