The SYLFF Association of University of Helsinki has published a book, Local and Global Encounters: Norms, Identities and Representations in Formation.
The book, Local and Global Encounters: Norms, Identities and Representations in Formation, has recently been published as the proceedings of a seminar under the same title, which was organized by the SYLFF association of University of Helsinki. It consists of eight articles written by the SYLFF fellows of University of Helsinki. The articles focus on local and global encounters and systems of references from different points of view. The cover page picture is by graphic designer Ivan Matosic. The picture is a trans-Siberian train in motion, which symbolises changes and movement through local and global encounters, the topic discussed in the book.
The SYLFF Association of University of Helsinki also held a book launch event at the University’s Renvall Institute, where about 25 people including the board members of the Association and SYLFF Fellows gathered to celebrate the publication and to thank the two editors of the book for their work.
The hardcopy of the book can be purchased for 10 euro from the Renvall Institute (see below for contact information) or downloaded in PDF free of charge at the bottom of this page.
