Curriculum vitae

I am a social scientist and a historian interested especially in visual communication, international relations, media studies, global politics and politics of life. I work as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Helsinki faculty of Social Sciences, Political History, in an Academy of Finland project “Multilayered Borders of Global Security”, GLASE (http://glase.fi/in-english/).  My research interests include visual representations of conflict, crisis and violence, visual communication in relation to humanitarianism, global mobility, refugeeness as well as terrorism. I am interested in compassion as a political force, (global) hierarchies of valuable life, inclusion and exclusions, humanism, posthumanism, feminism and animal studies. Photography, its history and political utilization fascinate me.
