Finnish Visitor at the IRC

P4 1

This April a Finnish colleague will be visiting the IRC. Pia Olsson is University lecturer in European Ethnology at the University of Helsinki. She is interested in how people experience urban space and how they remember and articulate their lives in urban settings. She has also conducted ethnographic fieldwork to understand cultural encounters among youth. Her latest project ‘Shared city’ analyses the ways urban public and semi-public spaces affect interethnic encounters.
