Women in the 1920s and 30s

Right now a small art exhibition is on display in the entrance hall; "Women in the 1920s and 30s" with eight female portraits painted by Hans Norsbo.

Hans Johanson Norsbo (1897-1955) is best known as one of the Falu graphic artists, but also painted many portraits. Around the 1930s, he was influenced by "the new realism", which was a reaction against expressionism in art.

The exhibition is on display until November.

- 100 years in the shadow of the state's racial biology institute in Uppsala

In 2008 I came to Uppsala University as a researcher, a decade after I had been a student here. Then for the first time I became aware of the archive from the National Institute of Racial Biology in Uppsala, and understood that my relatives might be there. The archive contains around 12 images. Just over a third are judged to represent Sami according to the racial biology institute's own categorization. Tower valleys are also included. 000 albums contain nude photos - two of them of children. How do I, who am both a researcher and myself directly affected by the archive, think about this? What can I contribute in terms of ethical approaches?

May-Britt Öhman, docent in environmental history, leads the research project "Sijddaj máhttsat means "coming home" in Lule Sami, with funding from the Swedish Research Council, and works as a researcher at the Center for Multidisciplinary Research on Racism, CEMFOR, Uppsala University, and guest assistant professor in history, Luleå University of Technology.

"Per Albin Hansson built the community center, Ingvar Kamprad furnished it and the Hagström family filled it with music."
That's how Hagström's importance to Swedish music history could be described. AB Albin Hagström began manufacturing accordions in 1931, but it was the guitars that took the Hagström name worldwide. The show gives a short version of the story of the small family business in Älvdalen that conquered the music world.

Jewish traces in the history of Dalarna

This is the first proper study carried out on the historical presence of the Jewish minority in Dalarna. And it offers interesting content. When the study was initiated through a discussion between Region Dalarna's Culture and Education Administration and Dalarna's museum about one of the national minorities' presence in the region, it was clear that it was an opportunity to go through and strengthen a state of knowledge about part of Dalarna's history that has been quite lean. For a cultural history museum, it is part of society's mission to explore the past and convey to the outside world what is found. The connections between yesterday, today and tomorrow are part of everyday life, as well as the fact that knowledge and learning have an obvious place in our community.
