Research

My
research interests are attached to everyday religiosity, the so-called lived
religion and diverse forms of religiosity. In my doctoral thesis (2007), I investigated
the relationship between tradition, experience and narration in the light of
interview material which she compiled in a Neo-charismatic Christian congregation.
Later on, I have studied the forms and
cultural adaptation of the global Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity in
Finland, as well as concepts of well-being, illness and healing in the context
of this religious trend. My other recent studies deal with construction of
religious identity and agency, the questions of religious belonging, as well as
prayer as a ritual, social interaction and communication. The perspectives of
my research represent social psychological, anthropological and narrative approaches
of religion. Currently, I am interested also in the intersection of plants,
horticulture, religion, and spirituality. Both well-being and healing as well
as rituals and communication are themes that emerge also in this field.
