A brief history of Sámi literature
Sámi literature's history can be traced from the 1600s and the course of this history can be interpreted in the context of important Sámi, national and international political movements. Sámi literature is that written by authors who are Sámi, members of the Sámi people. In this short podcast, the Sámi socio-political development will be illustrated as well as the expression of an independent Sámi voice through literature. It is written by Lill Tove Fredrikson, Associate Professor in Sámi Literature at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and the article is read out by Nicola Witcombe.
