Domestic use of fish in the northern households


I am a passionate fisherwoman as many of the people in Lapland are. I cannot point to any single reason for this passion but I can evaluate the main importance of this activity. Before getting in to the arts of fishing I want to pinpoint that my life with fish (and reindeer) as a whole conducts the basics in my thinking and writing anthropology – e.g. concepts of enskilment and tacit knowledge. Here I talk about my personal knowledge, from the special locality of the upper stream of Ivalo River.

Arctic session countdown: To Warsaw and back


Getting ready for my first international conference on IR ... sleepless night ... early wake up ... flight from North to South - Rovaniemi to Helsinki - and then all the way to Warsaw Chopin Airport (being stunned by the rectangular landscape dominated by agricultural patterns) ... learning to use the local public transport ... finding the registration desk in beautiful main campus of Warsaw University to participate the third day of the 8th Pan European Conference on International Relations held in 18 - 21 of September ... and catching breath during a happy reunion with friends and colleagues near and far ... and finally searching my way to the Arctic International Relations Panel 3 - The Arctic of Regions or Globalization hosted by professor Lassi Heininen.
