I work as a research assistant in comparative literature at the University of Turku, and I am currently finalising my Master’s thesis in comparative literature.
During the spring semester of 2019, I will act as one of the teachers in
a course that is related to the Instrumental Narratives project, which focuses
on narrative, reading and well-being. I also work as a bibliotherapist and
creative writing instructor.
I am interested in the question of truth in literature and in the different ways
that reading and writing can shape our narrative understanding. I am a member
of the Turku-based team in the project “Instrumental Narratives: The Limits of
Storytelling and New Story-Critical Narrative Theory”, which is funded by the
Academy of Finland.
