The Baltic Connections 2020 will take place at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, from March 26 to 27, and is hosted by the Department of History and Ethnology and co-hosted by the discipline of Economic and Social History at the University of Helsinki. As with the inaugural conference last year in Helsinki, we aim to bring together scholars working on comparative, economic, social, global, and other types of history and related social sciences to address various “East- West” historical processes and events as well as comparative and transnational analysis, including at the Baltic region, Europe, and the world.

The second Riitta Hjerppe Lecture in Social Science History will be given by Stephen Broadberry (University of Oxford). Further outstanding keynotes will be delivered by Kerstin Enflo (Lund University) and Sakari Saaritsa (University of Helsinki).
