About me

I started my fixed-term contract as a senior lecturer in Gender Studeis in autumn 2020, where I replace Venla Oikkonen until autumn 2023. 

Responsibilities

I teach and coordinate several courses in Finnish, as well as act as an examiner also for written assignments for the following courses: YKT.215 Gender Studies: Theories and Concepts; YKT.228 Gender, Body and Intersectionality; YKT.YKE.501 Genders and Sexualities; YKT.SUT.313 Sexuality and Intimate Relations. 

Fields of expertise

I am currently working on the history, archiving, and exhibiting of diverse genders and sexualities. My previous research projects have focused on emerging lesbian and gay communities, the changing position of homosexuality in Finnish society, and the sexualities and genders in flux. I have led a research project on affective inequalities in intimate relations, supervised doctoral theses on relationships of heterosexual and bisexual women, feminist activism, and sexological knowledge production.
