Description of research and teaching

I´m a PhD researcher at University of Helsinki, the Department of Education at the faculty of Educational sciences. I do my doctoral study in a research group "Cross-sectoral Policies and Educational Practices in the era of Marketization" (CRISP) which is a part of AGORA research center for the study of social justice and equality in education, which also serves as a regional center of the Nordic centre of Excellence Justice Through Education in the Nordic Countries.

My study explores democratic education from the standpoint of the philosophy of Critical Pedagogy. My special focus is on ethical and political commitments underlying Critical Pedagogy, dialectics as theory of subject´s consciousness, and world of structure, and power, the notions of radical democracy, and political injustice. I also scrutiny contemporary political sciences such as feminist-political epistemologies, theories of justice, and democracy and how these may contribute to Critical Pedagogy as democratic education.
