Oral History of Empires by Elders in the Arctic. A comparative history of the relations between states/Empires and their subjects in their northernmost peripheries

Project Details

Description

The Orhelia project developed a comparative history of relations between remote people and states in the eyes of Arctic indigenous elders, by using the method of life history analysis and oral history fieldwork combined with anthropological participant observation. Doing so, the project also contributed to preserve incorporeal cultural heritage among Uralic speaking northern minorities of Europe and study the transmission of historical heritage between different generations.
