Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a doctoral candidate in the field of Gender Studies, in the Doctoral Programme for Gender, Culture and Society (SKY).

In my PhD research project I study close relations in Finnish communes: what kind of relationships take shape in homes, which are not built on couple or family relations, but friendship and roommate relations? I am also interested in the role the material home has in shaping these relations.

My multidisciplinary study participates in the discussions on close relations and relatedness in the fields of gender studies, queer studies, sociology and anthropology.
