The Jane and Aatos Erkko Visiting Professor in Studies on Contemporary Society
The aim of the Jane and Aatos Erkko Visiting Professor in Studies on Contemporary Society is to focus on cultural and social research themes with a topical significance for contemporary society and social justice. The professorship was established in 2008 as the result of a 2.92 million Euros donation from the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation. The donation, under the discretion of the University of Helsinki Funds, will maintain the professorship and a residence for the holder of the post.
In 2012–2014, the Jane and Aatos Erkko Visiting Professor is Professor Joel Robbins.
