I am Gwenaëlle Bauvois, lecturer in ethnic relations at the Center for Research on Ethnic Relations and Nationalism (CEREN) at the Swedish School of Social Science, University of Helsinki.
I am French but I have lived in Finland for many years. I hold a PhD in Sociology from the University of Eastern Finland (2007). My interests are in ethnic relations, nationalism, right-wing populism, and hybrid media. I have been recently researching post-truth public stories in Finland, France, and the United States. My next project will bring me to look into anti-immigration mobilization in social media and counter media in the wake of 2015 asylum migration in Finland.
When I am not in the dark corners of the web, I am enjoying the many silver screens of Helsinki, the seaside and the museums around the city. This is my third year on the Board of ETMU, where I have had the pleasure of acting as a vice chair from 2017 to 2018. Since the beginning of 2019, I am the secretary and part of the editorial team of ETMU blog.
