Information om forskning och undervisning

My research project "Unfit for Citizenship: Eugenics and the Pathologization of Gender Nonconformity" advances and reconstructs earlier scholarly literature on 20th century eugenic discourses by examining the phenomenon of gender reassignment -related sterilization legislation in Scandinavian countries from a queer-theoretical and historical perspective. The research project aims to understand and answer the following questions: 1) how do certain forms of embodiment and gender expression come to be viewed as legitimately subjected to state-sanctioned sterilization? 2) What do various moral, psychiatric and political techniques around gender non-conforming embodiment and subjectivity reveal about a society, the nation-state, and notions of citizenship?

I am interested in biopolitics, social and political constructions of the fit and able-bodied citizen, dynamics of racialization as well as feminist disability studies, transgender reproductive justice, self-determination and theorization of resistance. My research approach and interests are multidisciplinary and stem from personal interests in human rights activism.

My latest publication can be downloaded and read at:

"Unfit for Parenthood? Compulsory Sterilization and Transgender Reproductive Justice in Finland"


My research project is funded by Kone Foundation and is carried out at the University of Helsinki, Department of Gender Studies.
