Co-Constituting Indigenous/Academic/Artistic Knowledges and Understandings of Land-, Water-, Body- and Lab-scapes?, Uppsala Oct. 10-12, 2012, 50-60 participants. The workshop is related to the VR financed project DAMMED: Security, Risk and Resilience around the dams of Sub Arctica, 2010-2012 4 339 kSEK (sustainable development call) The production of technological modern identities has rested in part on dispossessing indigenous peoples from their traditional lands and thus their land- and waterrelated identities. Also, technoscientific language and imagery also shapes and reflects power relations that favor the modern nation state, and de-favor indigenous rights to traditional lands-and waterscapes. Therefore within this workshop, we depart from the understanding that technoscientific knowledge production needs to be decolonized, that is democratized and made less hierarchical in order to enable indigenous peoples´ continuance, healing and regeneration. The large majority of research projects on Sámi related issues are currently being pursued by non-Sami scholars, and the situation are somewhat similar in other countries. Departing from these points, and inviting prominent scholars from Norway, Canada, the US and Japan, the ultimate aim and focus of the workshop is to provide a platform for a comparative and critical analysis of the Swedish situation and thereby to further the theoretical development.
