My postdoctoral research (2017->), funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation and the Alfred Kordelin Foundation, examines antimodern thought and sensibility in literature with a focus on Finnish essayists. I also work as a member in the project Arctic Hysteria: Strange Northern Emotions, funded by the Kone Foundation (2020-2022), and collaborate with the Academy of Finland project Mediated Arctic Geographies.
