The second Helsinki Knots Symposium, our first ever European conference, took place in October 2015 at the University of Helsinki. The conference explored how the two disciplines so central to our journal, Anthropology and Sociology, deal with the interplay between the intellectual and political/economic conditions of their existence. In the process, it also looked at the overlaps and separations between them as disciplines.
The keynote speakers were Jane Guyer (Johns Hopkins), Beverley Skeggs (Goldsmiths London), Ruben Andersson (LSE and Stockholm) and Éric Fassin (Paris VIII). We were live tweeting on the day, the results of which can still be seen on the hashtag #SRKnots.
