Utacas fellow 2006-2007

My current research focuses on temporal orders in social activity. In particular, I am interested in the acceleration of time in the late capitalist society, creating, among other things, an extended present and a shrinking future. Empirically my study deals with university organisations and academic identities. My research questions are: how do changes in timescape shape academic cultures and research practices and through what kinds of time perspectives do academics perceive their work, careers and professional identities. The empirical material is comprised of biographical interviews with academics in four different research environments in three universities. In addition, I co-ordinate with Marja Vehviläinen the Finnish team in an EU-project Women in Innovation, Science and Technology (WIST), which explores womens roles and career advancement in interface professions between science and the economy.
