Trust: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

We live in a time when manipulated images, partisan reporting, and allegations of ‘fake news’ make it increasingly difficult to determine whether individuals and institutions are worthy of our trust. Trust is akin to a leap of faith that depends on a combination of experience, intuition, bravery and sheer hope. As Alphonse Lingis observes, ‘[…] to trust you is to go beyond what I know and to hold on to the real individual that is you.” Interpersonal trust circumvents the uncertainties that may put relationships at risk and transforms these into the most wondrous of alliances as doubt turns to rapture.

Working-Class Literature in Finland and Finnish America

In 2019, September 20–22, the site for FinnFest USA is Detroit, Michigan, the United States capital of the automobile industry. People of Finnish origin have been a part of this industry, creating a significant Finnish community in Detroit between the 1920s and the 1950s. Even today, Detroit remains one of the largest metropolitan regions in the United States for people of Finnish origin. Finnish Americans were an integral part of the industrial history of the United States and deeply engaged in urban America and its factory work.
