The Faculty of Arts has launched the Helsinki University Humanities Programme (2017–2020) for visiting international professors and postdoctoral researchers.


  • To establish collaboration with the world’s leading researchers;
  • To expanding research cooperation networks;
  • To create new research openings; and
  • To produce co-authored articles for top-level journals.

The programme will bolster the international dimension of the University’s research environment.

The Faculty has invited seven high quality postdoctoral researchers for the chosen themes, Indigenous Cultures and Languages and Environmental Humanities, and five visiting professors and three postdoctoral researchers associated with visiting professors' research areas.
