Event name: Tatars in Finland in the Transnational Context of the Baltic Sea Region (Aleksanteri Institute, University of Helsinki 17.10.2018)

Tatar pedlars began to engage in mobile trade in the Grand Duchy of Finland from the
1870s. New research shows how Finnish newspapers constructed notions of the
encounter between these “newcomers” in the trading landscape and the local society in
Finland. Themes include accounts of ethnified trading practices and debates about illicit
trade and transnational mobility
