My PhD project (2016-2021) examines contemporary representations of Finnishness in Sweden in the landscape of social media and in the nexus of migrancy and 'national minority-ness'. My main focus is on Sweden-Finnish social media campaigns and online activism, and how questions of identity and belonging are articulated and negotiated both in a rapidly changing socio-political context in Sweden as well as in the digital era. I have previously studied representation of Sweden-Finnish authors in literature reviews.
