I: Suffering, social memory and the Karelian heart

I am currently working for Marja-Liisa Honkasalo in her study Suffering, social memory and the Karelian heart. My task in this project consists of collecting and organizing data and conducting background research that serves as a contextualisation for how cardiovascular diseases and depression are experienced and understood by the North Karelian people. I work with various materials and themes such as letters and other contemporary texts written by North Karelians about health and illnesses and political documents that shed light on the vast structural changes that have taken place in North Karelia in the last few decades.

My previous research interests have included a study of identity construction through institutional interaction in a 12-step rehabilitation unit for substance abusers, and a study of the transition of the Alcoholics Anonymous movement in Finland in the late 1990’s.
