Biography

Kaisu Hynnä (MA) is Doctoral Candidate of Media Studies at the Juno Doctoral Programme in History, Culture and Arts Studies at the University of Turku. Her research focuses on the themes of non-normative embodiment, social media and affect theory.



Research

My dissertation project explores larger-than-normative embodiment and its affective dimensions, focusing especially on the body positive movement in social media. Body positive representation are approached as affectively appealing material with the intention of moving the bodies of is audiences in positive ways. I am especially interested in which bodies' abilities to act and be acted upon are affected by body positive media representations and which bodies are left partly de-attached or even immobile related to body positivity. From the point of view of media studies, the focus is on the way material bodies, mediated bodies, and media technologies come together and get entangled in practices, such as taking and sharing body positive selfies or reading a fat activist blog. 



Teaching

My teaching experience includes courses on media analysis, selfies, and social media.
