Research project

A Hundred Finnish linguistic life stories is a project based on interviews of people living in Finland. The methodology of the project encompasses linguistic, ethnological, folkloristic and socio-political analyses. The project combines scientific and artistic aspects. In addition to the interviews, a professional photographer has photographed selected interviewees.

The three-year project started in June 2017 at the University of Helsinki. The project is funded by the Kone Foundation. The Language Bank of Finland and the Society of Swedish Literature in Finland are cooperative partners in collecting, processing and storing the research data.
