The Trivium Centre, founded October 10th 2006, is a multidisciplinary research centre of The Faculty School of Social Sciences at the University of Tampere. Our purpose is to increase dialogue and encourage study of classical, medieval and early modern cultures, society and everyday life. The members of the centre work as historians, philologists, as well as with literature and philosophy.
The researchers of Trivium working at the University of Tampere have been successful in obtaining research funding from elsewhere: during the past ten years, they have received approximately 4 million euros from the Academy of Finland as well as from different trusts and foundastions. The publication volume is also notable: for a list of recent publications by the researchers working at the University of Tampere, click here.

The book Migration and Multi-ethnic Communities. Mobile People from the Late Middle Ages to the Present (De Gruyter, 2018), edited by Maija Ojala-Fulwood, is out now! The articles present ten fascinating cases about the lives of migrants from different centuries. Writers analyse, for example, the ways ethnicity was understood in different time periods, and what kinds of motivations there were for migration. The book also works as a handbook for the methodology of migration studies.
