As we said last Thursday, we will be doing a time-lining activity during Seminar 2 and have divided you into time periods based on your conference paper groups. In order to prepare for this, please spend just a few minutes INDIVIDUALLY to find out some events that you find important and/or relevant to Sweden's environmental history. You should bring these with you to the seminar. Everyone is responsible for a 25 year period.

Next week we will be discussing the politics of natural resource management with a focus on a specific case in Jokkmokk in Northern Sweden. We have divided you into groups which are posted in studentportalen and assigned you an actor for next week's meeting. You should focus on this actor when you read the article before class and we encourage you to try to search for more information about each actor as well! Use the questions on padlet to guide your reading.
There is also a pdf copy of the Robert Yin book on studentportalen now.
