18.09. For a Holistic Social Science: The NACEVP Model Applied to the Environment, Gender and Populism 

Professor Risto Heiskala, IASR

This talk builds a holistic research programme showing the path away from the contemporary disciplinary fragmentation of the social sciences toward a holistic approach, which considers society as one whole and is capable of bridging the gap between the human and natural sciences. The scheme is based on Michael Mann’s IEMP model studying the Ideological, Economic, Military, and Political sources of power in historical sociology. In the talk it is extended to the NACEVP model, which is a social-theoretical research programme for the study of all objects covering Natural, Artefactual, Cultural, Economic, Violence-related, and Political sources of power. The model is evaluated by examining three brief case analyses on environmental problems, gender, and the rise of populism.   


02.10. "A Sacred Responsibility to Remember?" Famine Memorials and Their Importance in Finland and Ireland

Dr Andrew Newby, IASR

This talk examines the "Great Famines" which struck Ireland (1840s) and Finland (1860s) during the Nineteenth Century. It will start with a brief overview of some of the comparisons and contrasts in Irish and Finnish history, before focusing specifically on the famines and their commemoration: (i) what do the differences in commemoration in the two countries tell us about their own internal historical narratives, and how might these narratives be challenged by adopting a comparative approach? (ii) what do the locations, chronology and forms of the (approximately ninety) Finnish memorials contribute to our understanding of local and national identity?   



16.10. German Reconciliation Policy after World War II

Dr Benedikt Schoenborn, IASR


(abstract forthcoming)



30.10. Zeitgeist: A Theory of Global Social Change

Professor Pertti Alasuutari, TasTI, IASR

(abstract forthcoming)



13.11. Resisting Finnish Colonialism: The Case of Sámi Activism

Professor Tarja Väyrynen, IASR

This lecture discusses the nexus of colonial violence and peacebuilding through the example of Finnish-Sámi settler colonial relations. Violence that functions through the (gendered) indigenous bodies renders the bodies mute as violence embedded in these relations is structural, slow as well as epistemic. Yet, the multiple forms of colonial violence can be resisted as new Sámi activism demonstrates. Dismantling colonial relations requires comprehensive processes, approaches and stages that transform the relations toward more sustainable, peaceful, relations. Nations do not always want to recognize colonial relations and the existence of the indigenous populations at the core of the nation and, thereby, long-term peacebuilding and reconciliation is difficult.



27.11. On the Boundaries of Science, Spirituality and Medicine – Establishment of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) as a Medical Subfield

Associate Professor Jenny-Ann Brodin Danell, Umeå University


(abstract forthcoming)



11.12. What Kind of Culture Is 'Game Culture'?

Professor Frans Mäyrä, IASR


(abstract forthcoming)
