    Finnishness, Whiteness and Coloniality

    Edited by Josephine Hoegaerts, Tuire Liimatainen, Laura Hekanaho and Elizabeth Peterson

    This multidisciplinary volume reflects the shifting experiences and framings of Finnishness and its relation to race and coloniality. The authors centre their investigations on whiteness and unravel the cultural myth of a normative Finnish (white) ethnicity. This collection of case-studies illuminates how Indigenous and ethnic communities have participated in defining notions of Finnishness, how historical and recent processes of migration have challenged the traditional conceptualisations of the nation-state and its population, and how imperial relationships have contributed to a complex set of discourses on Finnish compliance and identity.
