Päivi Korvajärvi, Ph.D

Department of Women´s Studies
Utacas fellow 2005-2006

 

During my UTACAS term 2005-2006, I focus my research on two broader topics:
i) practices of doing gender, and
ii) gendered work communities, conflicts and social capital.

The common denominators of my research are critical reflection and development of doing gender and gendering practices. In addition, ethnographies as fieldwork and as a way of analyzing and writing are in the core of my study.

My aim is to analyze gender as diverse activities of people and to understand it as locally and contextually created and mobile phenomena particularly in work and organizations. I also conduct the project "Gendered work communities, conflicts and social capital"(http://www.uta.fi/laitokset/naistutkimus/socialcapital.htm) which is funded by the Academy of Finland. Four other researchers and doctoral students co-work in the project. Empirically the study concerns waged work (call centers, jobs in electronics) and entrepreneurship (care-giving firms). My aim is to explore, how social capital and trust are created from the point of view of shifting practices of gender in work. In addition, I want to promote women's and feminist studies particularly at the University of Tampere.
