Ilkka Mäkinen, Ph.D

Department of Information Studies
Utacas fellow 2005-2006

My main objective during my UTACAS year is to write a monograph on the history of reading in Finland in an international context. The biggest challenge is to make sense of the 20th century, when reading as a mass phenomenon reached its greatest triumphs but its greatest threats as well. The concept of "reading" itself is something to be explored. Among other themes I investigate why reading has been and is still seen in Finland as a question on national importance. My second objective is to edit a book on the history of Finnish public libraries (by a team).
