Time has arrived for Sosiologipäivät 2018, the annual conference of The Westermarck Society. This year, the conference is organized at the University of Eastern Finland, in the Joensuu campus, on the 15th and the 16th of March. As last year, members of the STS Helsinki network organize a workshop that has as an objective to bring together researchers across Finland who have an interest in science and technology, as well as from other countries. This year we have a very exciting list of presentations, so consider coming even if you do not have one. As last year, we are hoping for very exciting conversations to take place.
