on the 7th of Nov: The Past 30 Years of the Nordics -quiz and other games

The plans for celebrating ISHA Helsinki’s 30th Anniversary got disturbed by the epidemic so we figured out an alternative way to celebrate the birthday! We will organise a quiz on the theme “The Past 30 Years of the Nordics”, which is quite self-explanatory and will be concentrating on questions about events and topics of the past 30 years in the Nordic countries. So be prepared to test your knowledge related to geography, history, politics, scandals, and popular culture of the Nordics!
You can take part in the quiz either by yourself or in groups of maximum of 3 people. We will provide you with a questionnaire at the beginning of the quiz where you will write your answers. The winner(s) of the quiz will get eternal glory and virtual hugs and kisses from the organisers!
After the quiz, we can continue our Zoom hangout and play other online-games together if participants are feeling it.
We will provide the link for Zoom on the day of the event on the Facebook event and add it here on our website as well. See you on the 7th of the November!!

ISHA Annual Conference in Budapest 14.–19. April 2014


Huh! ISHA Helsingin uudenvuoden semma on takana, mutta ISHA ei lepää. (Scroll down for english)

ISHA:n 25. kevätkonferenssi järjestetään Budapestissä 14.–19. huhtikuuta kuluvaa vuotta. Tilaisuus on ainutlaatuisen historiallinen, sillä kaikkien rakastama ISHA eli International Students of History Association perustettiin juurikin Budapestissä kohta 24 vuotta sitten! Erityisen tästä konferenssista tekee myös ISHA:n perustajien ja alumnien kokoontuminen yhden pöydän ääreen.

Konferenssin teemana on “Images of the Other: Relations between Western and Central-Eastern Europe in History”. Akateemisen osuuden työpajoja täydentävät erilaiset temaattiset kaupunkikierrokset ja tietenkin perinteiset vapaa-ajan aktiviteetit kuten pubikierros ja Kansallisten juomien juhla (National Drinks Party)!

Ilmoittautuminen seminaariin alkaa 10. helmikuuta ja päättyy 14. helmikuuta. Konferenssiin valitut ilmoitetaan viimeistään 21. helmikuuta. Seminaarimaksu 100 e kattaa majoituksen, ruokailut ja matkat paikan päällä. Seuraa sähköpostilistaasi, lisää infoa tulee lähempänä ilmoittaumisen alkamista.

Alustavan kiinnostuksensa osallistua voi ilmaista osoitteeseen teemu.perhio [ ät ] Lähdetään porukalla Unkariin!
