|Report||I spent two weeks both in Finland and in Russia. In Finland I could introduce my work at the annual Aleksanteri-Conference organized by Aleksanteri-Institute, University of Helsinki. Additionally I could collect further interviews to deepen my understanding of experiences made by Finnish Construction Workers in the Soviet Union during the 1970s. During this trip I could also visit one of the towns built by Finns in Russia, just across the border and collected more interviews here, this time getting an insight into the then-Soviet view of the Finnish workers. Thus I was able to combine scientific networking with field research and am very happy and grateful that IRB enabled me to do so.|
