Biografi

I am a historian, specialized in human-animal studies and the ways in which people of the past perceived the sea environment. I am also interested in many other matters related to the shared past between humans and non-human nature. I have for instance written a lot about the ways in which humans have monsterized non-human nature and how they have exploited it. At the moment, I am working in the Finnish Academy project, "Living with the Baltic Sea in a Changing Climate", in Åbo Akademi. In this project, I will explore the changes in the shared past between humans and the Baltic fauna and flora. My primary objective is to explore how people have understood the disappearance of marine species and the arrival of new species in the Baltic Sea.
