Introducing the unique archive of anthropologist Hilma Granqvist

The Swedish-speaking Finn Hilma Granqvist (1890–1972) was one of the pioneers in modern anthropology and her fieldwork in Palestine during the 1920s and 30s have gained worldwide attention. Her research material has been in great demand, although it is difficult to access.  It is now being made available for readers and scholars in a digital archive.

Granqvist studied life cycle events in the Palestinian village of Artas during the 1920s and the 30s, a field work that produced five extensive volumes on the world view of Arab Muslims. Her documentation of a disappearing Palestinian society during a politically turbulent time, as well as her records on the local Arab dialect, have proven to be invaluable. Granqvist’s unique insight into the everyday life of Palestinian women still today offers an exceptional source for research.

The archival material is being published step by step, and will include Granqvist’s travel diaries, field notes, letters, photographs, and published books. The material is freely available and is published.
