Generations of Youth (2009–2011)

The data collection is organised through a writing competition, which aims to produce a pluralistic qualitative data that tells of lived, experienced and told youth in Finland during the 20th and 21st centuries. The data is saved for open research use at the Finnish Literature Society. The project coordinator in 2011 is Publication Secretary Vappu Helmisaari.
