Femte Thuleekspedition: - mod nye fællesskaber

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Since 2014, the National Museum of Denmark has collaborated with the Canadian organisations Kitikmeot Heritage Society (Cambridge Bay, Nunavut) and Geomatics & Cartographic Research Centre at Carleton University to make materials from the Inuinnait (Copper Inuit) area collected during the 5th Thule Expedition (1921–1924) digitally available firstly to people in Cambridge Bay, and secondly to a wider public. The ambition is now to make the totality of the 5th Thule Expedition material digitally available through the so-called Tumisiutproject, in order to integrate it into a wider framework of a new Nordic curatorial and research collaboration around Arctic and Sub-Arctic collections. Pivotal aspects of these collaborations are discussions on various domains of ownership rights such as “world heritage”, “cultural rights”, and “copyright”. The initial steps have recently been taken by the National Museum of Denmark and the Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo.
