The submissions are due to jofinnishstudies@gmail.com by January 31, 2021.

Please note two important changes since our last announcement: 

1. Paper proposals are now due January 6, 2021. Most other dates have been adjusted accordingly. (The new dates are given at the end of the CFP.)

2. The conference will have a virtual component. 

During these COVID times, it is difficult to commit to travel plans months in advance. We hope that the possibility of a virtual participation may facilitate your decision to submit a proposal.
