Mikko Lehtonen, PhD, Professor

Department of Literature and the Arts
Utacas fellow 2006-2007

My current research centers on the relations of the real and the symbolic. Firstly, I chart the ways in which corporeality and sensuality set foundations for human cultures. Secondly, I am interested in how power is reproduced in late modern popular culture. In the first project I develop a view of cultural meanings as always already material and corporeal by their nature. Here I am guided by an idea that human beings are both natural and cultural beings and that the real and the symbolic do hence fashion reciprocally each other. In the second project I want to dissolve the dichotomies of mind and body and to look at popular culture as an area where both cognitive and affective elements create willing consent in late modern subjects.
