About me

Educated at the University of Helsinki and Columbia University (USA), I specialize in culture, literature and humanities in Russian area studies.

I am the author and co-author of Brodsky Abroad: Empire, Tourism, Nostalgia (U of Wisconsin Press, 2010), Venäläisen kirjallisuuden historia, w/Kirsti Ekonen (Gaudeamus, 2012, 2. painos 2015); Empire Decentered: New Spatial Histories of Russia and the Soviet Union, w/ Maxim Waldstein (Ashgate, 2013); Cultural Forms of Protest in Russia, w/B.Beumers, A.Etkind, O.Gurova (Routledge, 2017); Russia as Civilization: Politics, Media, and Academia, w/Kåre Johan Mjör (Routledge, in print).
