Printed journal



This issue opens with Katarzyna Wolanik Boström and Magnus Öhlander's inquiry into mobile physicians and their pragmatic use of proto-ethnographic insights so as to facilitate their day to day work with culturally diverse patients. Gabriella Nilsson uncovers how school nurses, too, habitually draw on their knowledge of class and family background while implementing normative medical guidelines on childhood obesity. Maria Zackariasson seeks to show how members in a faith-based youth organization experience and handle the pull and push of faith and peer group sociability. 

Ewa Klekot examines different traces and registers of memorialization of recent Polish history in two districts of Warsaw. Disciplinary memory is augmented through Konrad J. Kuhn's analysis of Swiss scholars' participation in the Europeanization of Volkskunde. With Laura Hirvi's observations among young Finnish artists in Berlin, the issue concludes with another set of transnationally mobile actors.

About the journal:

Ethnologia Europaea is a lively and interdisciplinary, peer‐reviewed journal with a focus on European cultures and societies. It carries material of great interest not only for European ethnologists and anthropologists but also for sociologists, social historians and scholars involved in cultural studies. An impression of the areas covered by the journal is reflected in some of the thematic topics of the issues recently published:

European Ethnology Revisited (2014), Foodways Redux (2013), Imagined Families in Mobile Worlds (2012), Irregular Ethnographies (2011), Performing Nordic Spaces (2010), Sense of Community (2009), Europe (2008).


The journal was started in 1967 and is published annually (two issues). Since its beginning it has acquired a central position in the international and interdisciplinary cooperation between scholars inside and outside Europe. Ethnologia Europaea is an A ranked journal according to the European Science Foundation journal evaluation (European Reference Index for the Humanities initial list) and a level 2 (top level) journal according to the Norwegian model (in Norway and Denmark).

Since 2013 associate professor Marie Sandberg (University of Copenhagen, Ethnology Section, has taken over the editorship from professor emeritus Orvar Löfgren (Lund University). The journal is now edited by Marie Sandberg and professor Regina F. Bendix (Georg‐August Universität, Göttingen).
