The Finnish Literature Society (SKS) and the Society of Swedish Literature in Finland (SLS) are in the process of gathering personal narratives and recollections by scientists and researchers that either are or have been active in Finland.
The collection is part of a larger project on the history of science and knowledge in Finland since 1917. We invite as many scholars as possible to contribute with their personal recollections.
