Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My teaching and research interests cover topics on Asian Area Studies and especially themes such as national identities, gender studies, women's agency, imperialism and on intercultural encounters. In the project Finnish in China - China in Finland I will evaluate the Finnish expatriates' presence and identity in China. Lately I have been doing research on Burmese Buddhist nationalism in relation to Rohinga identity. Pedagogically Im interested in digital pedagogy, and thus, also doing research on Digital Pedagogy in Cultural Studies.
