Approaching Laestadianism as an insider researcher

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

In this article, I discuss my experiences of being an insider researching Laestadianism. I present my research, noting the advantages and dis-advantages, ending with a conclusion in which I refer to the discussion among anthropologists and ethnologists, especially in the study of reli-gion. The outcome is that even though the dis-tinction insider–outsider researcher is compli-cated, both insider and outsider researchers will improve the research, contributing to its nuanced presentation.
