My research focuses on cultural and national identities in fiction and travel writing, literature and borders, and the human-animal relationships. My work clarifies the nature of the relationship between Britain and Europe and processes of cultural mixing i.e. hybridization.

 

Since 2007, I am Professor of English at the School of Humanities at the University of Eastern Finland, and I teach literary and cultural studies. I am currently Vice-Dean of the Philosophical Faculty. I have studied in Finland and the UK. After completing my MA and FL (Licentiate) degrees at the University of Joensuu (as UEF was known until 2010 )in the early 1990s, I was awarded a British Council Fellowship for further study. In 1994-95, I studied Cultural Studies at the Department of Cultural Studies at the University of East London, UK, where I was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Cultural Studies (1995). I received my PhD in English from the University of Joensuu in 1996, and a second doctoral degree in sociology in 2005. I have published widely in my research areas and directed several research projects.
