Sounding Cold Spaces: Sámi Poetics

The land of the Sámi has been the fjords, moors and tundra of northern Scandinavia for thousands of years. Timimie Märaks uses spoken word art to update oral storytelling traditions and is an activist for indigenous land rights. Linnea Axelsson’s verse novel »Ædnan« tells the story of how two Sámi families fight against colonial trauma and violence against nature for over a century. The authors will read and talk about care, non-human agency and social imprinting in the climate crisis.
In cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence »Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective« at Freie Universität Berlin.

With Linnea Axelsson, Timimie Märak
