IIPC Debates

We are pleased to announce the establishment of a monthly series of seminars in which IIPC presents current research in a range of popular cultures. Anyone who has an interest in the field is warmly invited to attend and participate. Each seminar will consist of an opening presentation, followed by open debate from the floor.

The presenters as well as audiences will represent a range of research fields, so that the debates will be fruitful exchange across disciplines. The sessions will be conducted in both English and Finnish, depending on the presenter.
