1 – Opening Tromsø – Nov 2011

Seminar 1

A NEW LANGUAGE OF DOMESTICATION

Co-organised with the research group “Reindeer and Domestication” (Ivar Bjorklund) at Tromsø Museum.

The goal of this seminar is to start an interdisciplinary discussion on the similarity and difference between the so-called domestic and ‘wild’ Rangifer. We would like to develop a language that can be used to describe both “types” of Rangifer and not study each roup in isolation. To this end we have invited researchers in ethnography, genetics, environmental history, and archaeology to share their research and to participate in this dialogue. Each lecture will be ca. 45 minutes and 15 minutes for discussions afterwards.
