Swedish food tends to be simple and healthy. Perhaps Sweden’s most famous culinary invention is the sm¶rg¥sbord , a self-service buffet that includes an assortment of cold and hot foods. Sm¶rg¥sbords frequently include a variety of cold fish dishes, such as gravlax (cured salmon lutefisk cod or pollock marinated in potash lye), and pickled

From Vernacular to Modern in Sweden by Olof Kallstenius The history of architecture in Sweden over the last four centuries is one of "functionalistic eclecticism," with traditions borrowed from other cultures, molded by national politics, and blended into uniquely Swedish form. Sweden's traditional building culture was anonymous, exemplified by the Bjoerkvik storehouse, a nobleman's showpiece. But in the 1600s, Sweden began to fight its way to a position of international influence that spurred huge architectural ambitions. The traditional artistry continued and coexisted with high-profile architecture. Yet the older forms were considered unworthy for the sought-after self-esteem, and nobility made a massive effort to furnish their estates with modern architecture. An educational program was set up, and promising youth were sent on government-sponsored tours of Europe to learn about classical art and architecture. The first steps to create a truly national style were taken by 17th-century architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder. He renounced the joyful individuality seen in early Swedish baroque and tried instead to turn the whole of the country into his own Città ideale.

The Ministry of Culture is responsible for issues concerning cultural policy and media policy. The culture policy covers issues concerning cultural heritage, theatre, dance and music, artistic acitivities, achitecture, form and design, film, literature and reading etc. The media policy covers issues concerning public service radio and television, daily newspapers, media concentration, action against the portrayal of violence in the media, including film censorship and new media and new technology etc. On the international arena, the Ministry is responsible for the coordination of international issues in the cultural and media field, including EU coordination and Swedish Counsellors for Cultural Affairs stationed in other countries.
Each Ministry is principal for a number of government agencies, foundations, associations and companies. These are responsible for the day-to-day operations of public administration. The Government decides on objectives, guidelines and the allocation of resources for agency activities. But it does not determine how agencies should apply a law or what decision they should take in specific cases. In December each year the Government issues appropriations directions for agencies on the basis of decisions by Parliament, and these directions set out the objectives of the agency activities.

A brief summary.
    I n the texts on these pages you'll find references to several Sami groups. Even though the Sami's are one people that share a common past, there has been a lot of differentiation over the ages. The Sami's are not such a homogeneous group one could be made to believe after reading some of the descriptions found in english literature and on some websites.
    Those who have looked carefully at the images on these pages where Sami's wear traditional clothes, might have noted that there's quite a variety. This might be the most obvious difference, yet there's several others as in the traditional cultural expressions such the handicraft and in the various forms of "singing" ie: the joik.
    The Sami language also differs quite a lot from area to area, and when one person travels from one end of the Sami nation to the other the difference gets that large that the dialects gets mutually incomprehensible.
    Since the Scandinavian languages Danish, Norwegian and Swedish is considered to be separate languages, it is not wrong to talk about different Sami languages as well since the differences is larger than among those three Scandinavian ones. One colour is given for each of the Sami groups.

The situation of minority journals in Sweden
I want to start with a short presentation of the Immigrant Institute. The institute is a research and documentation centre on migration, refugees and issues on racism and discrimination. It has a library, an archive and even a museum of immigrant artists with exhibitions about migration in Sweden and in Borås. The institute cooperates with immigrant organizations in Sweden, universities and other Swedish organizations. The research made by the institute tries to part from the immigrants’ perspective. One of the first projects of the Immigrant Institute was to collect immigrant journals. The institute has since 1976 published a list on immigrant and minority journals. The first edition comprised 129 titles and the last edition from 2001 comprised 230 printed and 40 electronic journals. This list is available on paper but also on the internet. An archive with more than 1000 journals is available in the institute’s library. Many new magazines have been published during the past years. There are some magazines who started at the forties or fifties and who are still appearing, while others have an average life of 4-5 years of publication. The immigrant journals are very different from each other. We find many different categories, for instance general journals for a general public, local journals which address to members of a local immigrant organization (very common between the Finnish population), cultural journals addressing to cultural workers in some minorities and mostly published by individuals or by some organisation which only aim is to publish the journal (for instance in Kurdish and Farsi), journals for the youth and for women, for fishing and for music instruments. The diversity of the journals makes of course difficult for the Swedish authorities to find a system that could be suitable for giving support to them.

But the number and variety of fortifications, assembly places, votive sites and graves is impressive. The Viking Age was getting under way by the 9th century, and vast repositories of Roman, Byzantine and Arab coins attest to the wealth and power Swedish Vikings accumulated over the next century. Vikings travelled mostly to the east, making their mark in Russia, as well as trading with (and pillaging) Byzantine territories.
