This June has seemed to fly by but just wanted to write a very quick update post. A couple of weeks ago I again spent a few days at University of Jyväskylä to attend a seminar and a "development day". It was good visiting JYU again to see my colleagues there. The trip turned out … Continue reading Back at JYU Plus Empirical Ecocriticism
This spring, I applied for three different teaching posts at the universities of Jyväskylä and Vaasa. I mentioned that in this blog, too, so thought I'd just announce the end result here, too.

So, this post of "Doctoral Student" is a salaried position that allows me to … Continue reading A New Year as a Doctoral Student at University of Jyväskylä
