and social capital: Structure and change in business 1800–2000; Empowerment and
disempowerment in Finland 1550–1980; Midwives – Finnish urban women in service
economy 1650-1800; and Making and interpreting Finnish national pasts: role of

(together with Johanna Ilmakunnas and Marjatta Rahikainen) and “Midwives:
Birthing Care Professionals in Eighteenth-Century Sweden and Finland”, both in
Early Professional Women in Northern Europe, c. 1650–1850" (Routledge
2017) and "From Household Economy to Family Business" (together with
Jarna Heinonen) and "Statutory Invisibility: Urban Business Women's Legal
and Political Rights" (together with Jarkko Keskinen), both in Women in
Business Families from Past to Present (Routledge 2018). She has also published
a monograph in Swedish on the eighteenth-century midwifery "De frimodiga:
Barnmorskor, födande och kroppslighet på 1700-talet" (SLS 2016). Professor
Vainio-Korhonen is also an expert on arhives and digital humanities issues,
