The Finnish Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies is organizing a conference which focuses on the different aspects of 18th century aesthetic culture. The conference will take place on Friday and Saturday 20–21 March at the House of Science and Letters in Helsinki. The perspective of the conference is trans-cultural and its aim is to articulate the multiplicity of the aesthetic phenomena of the period.
