My academic interests include history of mentalities and ideas, Russian history and borderland issues. My approach tends to be that of a cultural historian; I am especially interested in representations of the past, and the ways they have been used in, for instance, supporting nationalistic efforts.
I am also a freelance writer and photographer. Besides topics related to history and culture, I like to write about – and photograph – nature, environment, countryside and all kind of living creatures.
This page is still (eternally, I’m afraid) under construction. Meanwhile, take a look at my CV and the list of my publications. Feel free to contact me via email: kati.parppei at uef.fi
