Jarkko Kari, Ph.D

Department of Information Studies
Utacas fellow 2006-2007


My research project explores the outcomes (effects and uses) of spiritual information, as well as relates them to domain characteristics. The following means of data collection will be used:

  • gathering a sample of 100 spiritual texts which mention any supposed outcome
  • interviewing 30 Finnish individuals in the domain of spirituality
  • conducting a mail survey with 2,000 persons representing the general population of Finland
  • doing two naturalistic experiments.

During my year at UTACAS, I shall focus on processing, analysing and reporting on the document data, as well as creating and testing an interview scheme, recruiting the interviewees, and doing the interviews and first experiments. For more information about the project, please see my research plan at http://www.uta.fi/~csjakar/kari2005.pdf.
