The John Morton Center for North American Studies

The national John Morton Center for North American Studies coordinates societal, academic, and entrepreneurial engagement related to the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Our academic focus is on interdisciplinary and multi-methodological research and teaching to bring together scholars and students from various disciplinary backgrounds. The Center's mission is to cater for interdisciplinary dialogue and to engender synergy among Finnish and international North American Studies scholars as well as representatives of the public sector, commerce, and media.

The JMC’s activities include a research network, "Current Issues" seminars, conferences, and annual thematic workshops. We also contribute to North American Studies education, including writing and publishing workshops for doctoral students, and provide resources for the public.  Our vision is to strengthen Finnish, inter-Nordic, inter-European, and trans-Atlantic research collaboration and to become the main forum in Finland to facilitate North American Studies dialogue.
