SIEF2021 15th Congress

Helsinki, Finland
21-24 June 2021

Breaking the rules? Power, participation, transgression

The 15th international SIEF congress will take you to Helsinki, a vibrant city by the Baltic Sea with an Arctic twist. Helsinki is known for its laid-back and safe atmosphere, its internationality and open-mindedness, and the proximity of urban culture and mesmerising nature. The congress will be hosted by the University of Helsinki, Finland’s largest and oldest academic institution (est. 1640). With the theme Breaking the rules? Power, participation and transgression, we invite and encourage participants to explore the dynamics, modes, arenas and implications of breaking the rules and to revisit and discuss underlying concepts.

The Call for Panels, Roundtables, Workshops and Combined Formats closed on 21 September and decisions will be communicated by 15 October. Meanwhile please read the theme, then go to the Call for Panels etc page to read all about the formats, rules and instructions.

SIEF2021 is likely to have both face-to-face and virtual elements, the balance of which will depend on the global health situation in 2021.
