ARI ANTIKAINEN

Professor, Emeritus

Sociology of education is a field of intersection or bridge between sociology and education. I have studied life history, socialisation, education, identity and Nordic model.


I have studied at the Universities of Tampere and Jyvaskyla, worked as a professor in the University of Joensuu and Tampere, as a docent in the University of Lapland and been awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Turku.

I have been a visiting scholar in the University of London, Rochester (N.Y.), Toronto and British Columbia (Vancouver). I have been as a active member, secretary and president of the International Sociological Association's research committee 04 Sociology of education.
