This article focuses on multiculturalism in the Nordic countries, in the context of exceptionalism and claims of innocence. The discussion shows the Nordic countries as participating in conversations about multiculturalism within a large transnational media space, where racial slur and acts become neutralized when re-contextualized within Nordic claims of colonial exceptionalism. Taking Iceland as an example, the discussion demonstrates the importance as well of acknowledging different histories and the ways in which racism and multiculturalism are rendered meaningful in the Nordic countries.
