Biography

PhD
(Sociology), Adjunct Professor (History of Sciences and Ideas)

I am a sociologist and historian, specialized in interdisciplinary approaches to health and illness, mainly mental health issues and diagnostics, particularly in the late
nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but also in contemporary contexts.
I have published on
topics such as women’s madness, the history of psychiatry, racial hygiene,
childhood and modernity, petty trade and materiality, in addition to
methodological articles. Over the years, I have worked with a multitude of
methods, such as textual/discursive, archival, and ethnographic methods.

Currently, I am involved in the project “Dealing with Difference”: Peddlers, Consumers and Trading Encounters in
Finland, 1840–1940
(funded
by the Academy of Finland and the Kone Foundation). This interdisciplinary
project traces the history of traders and consumers in Finland from the grand
duchy of Russia to the full nation state, ca 1840–1940. By focusing on
ethnicity, gender, class, and religion, our research explores meanings of
itinerant trade and of marketed commodities, as well as investigates practices,
representations and experiences of both traders and consumers.

My part of
the project looks at encounters between the majority population and Roma peddlers.
I am interested in the meanings given to Roma traders and their commodities in
public texts, ethnographic questionnaires, images and fiction. I am also looking
at self-understandings and experiences of the Roma by analyzing interviews with Finnish Roma, carried out by Roma activists
(nonprofessionals).
