Currently I am working as university lecturer in Musicology teaching methodological approaches to music history and popular music history (e.g. 1980s popular music genres). I also supervise both graduate and post-graduate theses and I am responsible of supervision of BA-seminar students and studies in BA-level.
Riding on the wave of the zeitgeist, I recently updated and extended my doctoral dissertation and published it as a book ’Englishness, Pop and Post-war Britain’ (Intellect, 2016). I have also researched and written about the history of Finnish popular culture and music (and its relationship with Kalevala) and the history of eccentricity in popular culture stardom. My current research interests are, connected to my previous work and include the contemporary branding of Finnishness in popular music cultures and music history biography.
