EERIKA FINELL

Professor

As a sociopsychologist, I am interested in intragroup processes and how these processes shape people’s experience, their well-being, attitudes, and intergroup relations. I analyse these issues in two fields: i) multicultural contexts and national identity, and ii) environmental threats. My research is characterised by an interest in studying these phenomena in contexts that may appear banal at a first glance (mothers’ intergroup contacts with other mothers in playgrounds, small everyday memories associated with national symbols, children’s experiences in mouldy school buildings). The analyses of these kinds of  slow moving and everyday phenomena may play a pivotal role in the development of many sociopsychological approaches and fields and they have high practical meaning.
