    Konsta Kaikkonens avhandling er en kildekritisk studie av noen av de historiske kildene til det forfatteren kaller noaidevuohta, dvs. funksjoner, tradisjoner og fenomener knyttet til de sentrale rituelle spesialistene (noaidit) i det nordsamiske området. Målet er å utføre «an autopsy on the concept of Saami shamanism», gjennom kontekstualisering av kilder og forfatterposisjoner i forhold til noaidevuohta, til det samiske, til andre tekster om samme anliggender, og til diskurser, paradigmer, idehistoriske strømninger og samfunnsmessige forhold Presentasjon av ny ph.d.-avhandling: Konsta Kaikkonen, 2020, Contextualising Descriptions of Noaidevuohta: Saami Ritual Specialists in Texts Written until 1871, Bergen: Universitetet i Bergen.

    This is a book review of an anthropological anthology, Indigenous Efflorescence. Beyond revitalisation in Sápmi and Ainu Mosiredited by Gerhard Roche, Hiroshi Maruyama and Åsa Virdi Kråik (2018). The volume acknowledge ongoing efforts around the globe to revitalise languages and cultures, defining Indigenous efflorescence as a slow revolution occurring almost unnoticeably. Examples from two Indigenous peoples are provided, Sámi and Ainu, giving voice to thirty contributors who describe contexts and practices of 'Indigenous efflorescence' in a broad variety of settings. The review focusses on the merits of the concept of Indigenous efflorescence with a special emphasis on three of the chapters where digital contexts are provided. (Indigenous) efflorescence is an interesting theoretical concept to investigate in relation to theory and practice in remote teaching, online learning, and distance education for K-12 schools as it stresses the aim with any educational practice, which is the growth and flourishing of those involved. It also offers leverage against simplistic narratives of both decline and progress. This volume does what it sets out to do: offer hope and stimulate projects for supporting Indigenous efflorescence.

    In this extensive and detail-rich monograph, Zsuzsanna Varga explores Hungarian agriculture during the Cold War. The so-called “agricultural miracle”, with a question mark, relates to the successful transfer of Western technology and know-how, which in the 1970s and early 1980s had transformed the Hungarian countryside, dominated by producer cooperatives, far from the Stalinist kolkhoz-type. The Hungarian agricultural miracle? Sovietization and Americanization in a communist Country by Szuzsanna Varga - translated by Frank T. Zsigó, Lexington Books, 2020, 354 pp., $125.00 (hardback), ISBN 978-1-7936-3435-1, $45.00 (eBook), ISBN 978-1-7936-3436-8.
