Was the family a haven in a dark world or the space of unchecked partiarchal power?

The aim of the course is to examine the effect of modernization on the individual, the family and the life of men and women. How did the so called ”traditional agrarian society” in Finland differ from for example Britain with early industrialization. Did industrialization create improvement in the lives of men and women, were they affected equally or differently. How did individuals and families create strategies in the countryside and in urban areas. Did the law protect the weak when the concept of individualism was on the increase. Was the family a haven in a dark world or the space of unchecked partiarchal power.

Hän on perehtynyt intersektionaalisuuden periaatteisiin (sukupuoli, luokka, etnisyys) ja osaa suhtautua kriittisesti yksinkertaistaviin yhtenäistulkintoihin.
