Individuals, Generations and Social Groups 1721–1925: The Fourth Finnish-Russian Conference on Elite Studies

The theme of the Fourth Finnish-Russian conference on the history of elites is ‘individuals, generations and social groups’.

The concept ‘elites’ is defined broadly: every society and social group – including peasants and workers – had their respective elites. Elite studies focus on the study of key persons, powerful groups and important social forces and formations in all their varieties.

The language of the conference is English, and there is no interpretation.
