    2021-05-20

    The 2022:1 issue of Ethnologia Fennica calls for articles that discuss ways of using oral history and personal memories in public history activities and participatory processes. How do applied ethnographic work and ethnological research affect these activities, or how should they affect them? We seek novel and innovative contributions that will expand our understanding of these objectives and diversify uses of individual and personal experiences.

    The deadline for submitting article manuscripts is November 30, 2021. Please submit your abstract by June 30, 2021. The deadline for reviews, reports, and commentary texts is in April 2022. The issue will be published in the autumn of 2022.

  • Posthumanism and Ethnology, Ethnologia Fennica Vol 47 No 2 (2020)

    2021-02-09

    The latest thematic issue of Ethnologia Fennica discusses the intersections of ethnology and posthumanist theories and approaches. The central idea of posthumanist theoretization is to displace the human being from the central position in the universe and highlight that more-than-human entities have strongly affected the formation of humanity. Although the debate on posthumanism has been going on in the humanities and social sciences for a couple of decades, in ethnology and related fields such as anthropology and folklore studies, the discussion on posthumanist approaches has started less than ten years ago. While human-animal and human-nature relationships have been objects of research in these fields for a long time, traditionally these aspects have been studied in order to find out something about human societies and modes of thought. Posthumanist enquiry, on the other hand, aims to highlight the significance and agency of more-than-human entities.
