Abstract [sv]

The central question raised in this study is the sense of community in Keskijärvi, a mining village in the north of Sweden. What is the nature of the local community and in which activities is it expressed? This question is examined through an empirical study of two communicative practices which convey local knowledge in the village. The method used is participant observation, supplemented with interviews. Findings indicate that no single, overarching local community exists in the village, that the communities that do exist are of two kinds: concrete vs. imagined, and that acquaintance was a salient feature in the variation between the two communicating practices.
