The bicentenary of Helsinki University in 1840: the jubilee of a Russian University in a Nordic context

Pieter Dhondt UGent (2011) National, Nordic or European? Nineteenth-century university jubilees and Nordic cooperation. In History of science and medicine library : scientific and learned cultures and their institutions 25(4). p.13-38
abstract
The 200 year anniversary celebration of the University of Helsinki was dominated by the idea of improving cultural and scientific connections with Russia. Consequently, the visit of a large delegation of Swedish students, who dreamt of restoring (at least to some extent) the relationships with the former Swedish province of Finland were prevented from attending. Moreover, the University of Helsinki presented itself not only as a Russian institution, but increasingly also as an institution for the whole Finnish nation. And indeed, while Swedish students were not welcome, representatives from Dorpat were explicitly invited, even though many professors in Dorpat, like their colleagues in Helsinki, found it difficult to decide on their attitude towards the authoritarian Russian government.
