The CoE studies the history of Finland from the late Middle Ages (1400) to present day (2000) or more precisely: what is the history of Finland. For us it is a history of an imagined nation, a critical approach to long a process, formations, interactions, structures, communities and identities, which later become known as the history of Finland.
The CoE consists of four research teams; one of them focuses on communities (dir. Pirjo Markkola). The Communities (community and every-day life) studies how people have organized their lives at the everyday level as their own community. It explores what have been the rules, divisions, limits and spaces of social life, and how these forms are related to local, regional and national structures (especially the state control).
