Rethinking Colonialism

This chapter examines the centrality of impoverishment in colonial discourses and the diverse ways poverty has been defined across lines of difference over time and space. The study focuses on silver consumption in Finland, illuminating the complex ways western European visitors and Finns defined silver’s symbolism and broader notions of wealth in distinctive forms. We focus on how metaphors of impoverishment, affluence, and globalization inflect archaeological interpretation and hazard reproducing particular definitions of wealth and poverty. The paper examines the ways impoverished experiences are at the heart of colonial experience, even in contexts like Finland that are not normally considered as conventional colonial settings.

Keywords:   Poverty, Affluence, Finland, Silver
