Families, values and knowledge transfer in Northern Europe
The Communities team of the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Historical Research
organizes a workshop “Families, values and knowledge transfer in Northern
Europe” at the University of Tampere, Finland, on November 27–28, 2014.

The workshop aims to analyze the significance of families and communities in
transferring and disseminating values, ideologies and knowledge into the next
generation. The workshop is particularly interested in relationship of family
and education; what was the role of family as a value community? What kind of
attitudes and knowledge were regenerated by families and communities? How did
families and communities react to formal education? The time span is from the
early modern era to the 20th century and the themes focus on models and
conventions featured in Northern Europe.

The workshop invites proposals on the following themes:

attitudes towards education and schooling
social mobility and education
gender, class and education
occupation, families and society
nation building and families
nation building and minorities
institutional pedagogical power and families
power, networks and education

Researchers interested in presenting a paper at the workshop are asked to send a
short abstract of no more than 300 words in English by August 20, 2014, to the
following email addresses: ulla.aatsinki at jyu.fi and mervi.kaarninen at uta.fi.

The speakers will be informed of paper acceptance by September 1, 2014. For
additional information contact: ulla.aatsinki at jyu.fi and mervi.kaarninen at uta.fi.
Some of the papers will be published in a peer-reviewed anthology.

The CoE studies the history of Finland from the late Middle Ages (1400) to
present day (2000) or more precisely: what is the history of Finland. For us it
is a history of an imagined nation, a critical approach to long a process,
formations, interactions, structures, communities and identities, which later
become known as the history of Finland.

The CoE consists of four research teams; one of them focuses on communities
(dir. Pirjo Markkola). The Communities (community and every-day life) studies
how people have organized their lives at the everyday level as their own
community. It explores what have been the rules, divisions, limits and spaces of
social life, and how these forms are related to local, regional and national
structures (especially the state control).
