Kirsi Kanerva

Postdoctoral researcher
University of Helsinki

I am a cultural historian specialized in Nordic cultural and mental history. In my previous research projects, I have studied the history of mind and emotions in medieval Scandinavia, the restless dead in medieval Icelandic saga sources, and the history of suicide in medieval Scandinavia, as well as the agency and social networks of the Swedish-speaking population in rural eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Finnish Southern Ostrobothnia. My current research deals with nightmares among the Swedish-speaking population in pre-industrial nineteenth and early twentieth-century Finland. (For more information, see the  project "Northern Nightmares 1400-2020" https://blogs.helsinki.fi/northernnightmares/ ) At the moment I am planning a new project that will deal with sensory history.
