THE FINNISH SOCIETY FOR EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES

The objective of the Finnish Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies is to create and promote contacts between Finnish scholars interested in the eighteenth century. The Society has a nationwide organisation and aims at uniting eighteenth-century scholars irrespective of their institutional affiliation or academic discipline.

The Society supports and coordinates eighteenth-century studies carried out in all areas of academic activity by organising seminars, meetings and excursions and by creating and maintaining contacts among Finnish scholars and between its members and members of the other national societies for eighteenth-century studies. The activities of the society focus primarily on the field of academic research yet its events may also be made open to the general public.

The Society was founded on 3 April 2001. It applied the membership of the International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies - Société internationale d'études du dix-huitième siècle (ISECS - SIEDS) in 2001 and was officially accepted as a constituent society in 2003. ISECS is a joint organisation of approximately thirty national societies for eighteenth-century studies. It has more than 10,000 members worldwide.
