Political Participation in Greenland in the 19th Century, State Hegemony, and Emancipation
Since the middle of the nineteenth century, parts of the West Greenlandic population have been able to influence the colonial administration through local, regional, and national councils. Based on the preliminary findings of my current research project, this paper explores and discusses the
modus operandi of the councils from the points of view of theories of discourse and hegemony and transactional anthropological theory.
