Welcome to my homepage!
I have a PhD in
Cultural History and I am Adjunct Professor (in Finnish dosentti) in Finnish
history at the University of Turku. From the beginning of the year
2010, I am working at the Helsinki
Collegium for Advanced Studies at the University of Helsinki,
so I do not update these pages so often; however, I am still also an adjunct
professor in history and I participate in
many projects connected to the University of Turku. (For some more information,
please check the links on the left.
I am currently building a new website at http://anulah.wordpress.com,
and some of the links may actually lead you there.)
My fields of expertise
include medieval & early modern studies and gender history. In 2007,
I defended my doctoral thesis about Female agency in the Fleming family
(in Sweden), 1470-1620. The book, later also published in Swedish, was
given a honourable mention by the Committée choosing the "Science
Book of the Year" (Vuoden tiedekirja -kunniamaininta) in 2008. I
was also honoured to receive the title of the "Humanist Doctor of
Lately, I have also
got interested in studying the representations of American Talk Shows
and some 19th century literature.
Besides doing research and giving some lectures (in Finnish, Swedish and
English), I like to hang around in scholarly networks. I like the intellectual
challenge in trying to make history interesting for non-professionals.
That is how I ended up writing something completely different: Scandal!
History of Tabloids before Tabloids. I have also written
a book about medieval Nordic princesses.
