Research Interests

Sustainable, locally-based practices of self-subsistence: Studying, developing, engaging in, and spreading practices of autonomous and communal self-subsistence based on experientially/experimentally accumulated understandings of local ecological communities, habitats, and cultures, notably in the Finnish/Nordic contexts.

Interlingual, intersemiotic, and interspecies communication and translation: Studying, developing, engaging in, and facilitating ethical communication between members of the human species, as well as between humans and members of other species. Studying, practicing, and experimenting with non-linguistic forms of communication and listening, notably those involving physical contact, improvisation, and dance.

Post-humanist art and literature: Studying and experimenting ways in which art, notably literature, can contribute to enhancing human sensibilities to other forms of living and non-living existence, thereby potentially calling forth desire and action to reduce (harmful) human impact.

Nature spirituality: Studying traditional, locally-rooted nature spirituality and its contemporary forms and traces in the Finnish society, culture, and people’s everyday life. Maintaining and revitalizing nonreligious practices of the sacred/holy in relation to nature (e.g. sauna and swimming in icy waters).

Art, activism, and civil disobedience as means for societal transformation: Studying and participating in various forms of individual and collective action to promote societal transformation toward better, more sustainable, and more equitable futures for all.
