Virtual Special Issue Acta Borealia: A Nordic Journal of Circumpolar Societies

Acta Borealia

Acta Borealia is a multi-disciplinary scholarly journal for cultural studies in the Fennoscandian north and the circumpolar region as a whole. We publish basic research stemming from disciplines such as history, archaeology, social anthropology and linguistics, as well as cross-disciplinary research in the social sciences and humanities. The journal focusses on themes such as ethnic and minority relations, Sámi culture, as well as socio-political and economic development in the North, all of which can be considered in both past and present contexts. The contributing authors are mainly from the Nordic countries, but also from other countries conducting research on circumpolar societies.

This virtual issue contains selected articles from the past few years that are aimed at illustrating the multi-disciplinary nature of the journal, with papers from history, archaeology, Sámi studies, and linguistics, as well as one from a theme number on circumpolar Arctic urbanization. We invite readers to explore with us the many dimensions of northern societies and we encourage authors to submit manuscripts that contribute to enriching the discourse on northern issues.
