Historian käyttö ja vastaanotto - The use and reception of history

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description (abstract)

People use history to explain the present and to weigh up future forecasts. This phenomenon, called the consciousness of history, is our key research area. We study how people use history in their everyday life and how they understand history. Moreover, we study how various groups – for example, small children and immigrants – form their view of history.
