Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the permanent exhibition Prehistories 1 at the National Historical Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. It concludes that women to a greater extent than previously are included in the narratives of the exhibition. However, is it enough to make more characters female? Reading the museum narratives through intersectionality and social semiotics, it is suggested that numbers are not enough. A certain variety exists among both male and female characters in relation to class and to a certain degree to age. But, the exhibition’s descriptions of prehistory as a society advancing and becoming more and more complex are still representing male characters as older, more authoritative and powerful. In comparison, women’s roles appear visually underdeveloped and may thus be perceived as less important. Visually the exhibition displays a historical narrative of a journey from distant nature (woman) to familiar culture (man), replicating the grand narrative of human history and excluding the Sámi people as cultural Others, in particular Sámi women who are subject to exclusion at the intersection of ethnicity and gender.
