Seuraavassa tiedekahvilatilaisuus järjestetään torstaina 26.4. klo 17 alkaen Ranskan instituutissa (Yrjönkatu 36, 3. krs.). Tiedekahvilatapahtumissa Suomen ranskankieliset ja ranskaa taitavat tiedeyhteisön jäsenet voivat kokoontua mukavassa ilmapiirissä, tehdä uusia tuttavuuksia ja vaihtaa kuulumisia uusimmista projekteistaan.

Helena Tyrväinen, Doctor of Letters, studied musicology at the University of Helsinki and at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (F. Lesure). She is currently a researcher, and professor at the University of Helsinki, and focuses on transcultural issues and the role of cultural capitals in the Third Republic. Specialized in the musical relations of the Franco-Finnish (especially during the time of the Franco-Russian alliance) and the Finnish composer Uuno Klami, she has also worked on the Franco-Nordic musical relations in a more general way. Moreover, she has published numerous articles in Finnish, French and English, edited anthologies and organized international conferences in Helsinki, St. Petersburg and Paris.
In her talk, Helena Tyrväinen will analyze Sibelius’s relationship with France, as well as the mechanisms of the country’s musical life that regulated its public image. The idea that French taste is not receptive to Jean Sibelius’s music is well-known in Finland. In fact, the work of the Finnish composer has secured a stable place in the repertoires of French orchestras and his innovations have inspired many important French composers alive today.
Laetitia Canete obtained her master’s degree in fundamental physics at the Lyon 1 University in 2014, she worked at the Lyon Observatory, on the calibration of the LIGO gravitational wave detector at the Hanford site in the United States, as well as in the laboratory of advanced materials. She is currently a PhD student at the University of Jyväskylä in the IGISOL group, her research work focuses on nuclear mass measurement for astrophysics. Since 2017, she collaborates with the GANIL nuclear research center based in Caen on a joint project of mass measurement The familiar light of the Sun during the day and the starry sky of a cloudless night are the result of powerful nuclear reactions generated in the heart of the stars. Stellar and primordial nucleosynthesis are at the origin of the matter composing our bodies and all that surrounds us. To understand these complex physical processes, research centers use particle accelerators and in-situ recreate the nuclear reactions that shape the cosmos.
