A TOUCH OF THE PAST / MENNEEN KOSKETUS
 

Welcome to the post-doc gathering organised by Centre for Artistic Research (CfAR) at Uniarts Helsinki on Wednesday 13.11.2019 at 15:00–19:00 at the Theatre Academy, Room 535, Staircase C (Haapaniemenkatu 6, Helsinki). 
 
How are we as researchers touched by people from the past, and how could we, in turn, touch our audiences? How to transform a monument into a human being, Jean into Janne? And what if someone from the past sent us a letter, what would we reply?
 
Welcome to discuss these questions in a “salon” of artists and researchers at the Theatre Academy on November 13, 2019. The event is organized in collaboration with the Uniarts Helsinki History Forum and Turku University’s research centre SELMA (Centre for the Study of Storytelling, Experientiality and Memory). 
 
The speakers include the music researchers Susanna Välimäki, Anne Kauppala, Ulla-Britta Broman-Kananen and Timo Virtanen, the cultural historian Kirsi Tuohela and CfAR’s postdoctoral researcher Elina Saloranta, who will introduce her historical pen-pal Elli Forssell-Rozentāle (1871–1943). 
 
Refreshments will be provided – Welcome!
 
NOTE: This event will be in Finnish. Tilaisuuden kieli on suomi.
