Utacas fellow 2006-2007

My current research deals with gendered agency in two contexts. Firstly I have interviewed Finnish feminist scholars by using the so called chain method. I want to find out how they posit themselves in academia. Secondly, I am going to interview experts on European statistical knowledge in Italy, Germany and Finland. The specific focus is on what kind of choices the experts do when constructing indicators concerning employment, inequality, poverty and social integration. I will analyse how their choices assume, hinder and enable certain types of gendered agency. The latter study is part of the research project Knowledge Production: Gendered agency and power in EU statistics together with Merja Kinnunen (University of Lapland) and Marja Alastalo (University of Tampere).
