Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a media historian who has studied the history of television, advertising, journalism and documentary film. As a social historian, I have been interested in intellectual history, culture and student activism, the history of everyday life, the history of consumption and modernisation processes.

My recent book Mediahistoria. Viestinnän merkityksiä ja muodonmuutoksia puheesta bitteihin (Media History. The Meanings and Transformations of Communication from Speech to Bits) (Finnish Literature Society Publishing, 2016) is the first monographic overview of media history in Finnish. My other books include two comprehensive studies on the history of Finnish television: Näköradiosta digiboksiin: Suomalaisen television sosiokulttuurinen historia (From Visual Radio to Set-Top Box: The Socio-Cultural History of Finnish television). (Gaudeamus, 2007) and Modernisaatiomurroksen kaupalliset merkit. 60-luvun suomalainen televisiomainonta (The Commercialised Signs of Modernisation. Finnish Television Advertising in the 1960s) (Finnish Literature Society Publishing, 2003). I have also written the history of the student paper Ylioppilaslehti (796 pages), which is not just “any student paper,” but a major Finnish institution that has seen most of Finland’s cultural and political elite pass through its editorial staff in the 20th century.

Currently, I work as a Senior Lecturer of Political History at the University of Helsinki, Department of Political and Economic Studies, Section of Social Science History.

I have been teaching courses on media history, television studies, world politics, integration and globalization, management communication, intercultural communication, qualitative methods, interview studies, history and analysing of advertising, and history of consumption in Finnish universities.
