375 faces for University's 375th birthday

In honour of the University of Helsinki's 375th anniversary, the Faculty of Arts presents 375 humanists.


The individuals featured on the web pages provide a glimpse of the social and cultural impact of those working in the humanities as well as examples of their breadth of knowledge. The focus is on current research and the work of alumni in various societal connections, but there’s a place for stars from past too.



On each day of the centenary year one figure from the humanities will be presented, with several individuals representing a single theme making up for the extra years. The individuals have been chosen to illustrate as broadly as possible the societal impact of the humanities.
