Juhana H Aunesluoma
Born in Helsinki, Finland in 1967, I graduated from the University of Helsinki (Master in Social Sciences) in 1993 and received my doctorate from Oxford University in 1998 (Modern History Faculty & St Antony's College). In 1998-2001 I worked as a post-doctoral researcher in Nokia Corporation, the Finnish Association of Graduate Engineers and the University of Helsinki. In 2001 I was appointed Senior Lecturer in Contemporary History in the University of Helsinki. In 2010 I was appointed Director (Research Director) of the Network for European Studies, which is a multidisciplinary research and teaching unit in the University of Helsinki devoted to the study of Europe in all its historical and contemporary diversity. In 2015-2017 I am the Government of Finland and David and Nancy Speer Professor in Finnish Studies at the University of Minnesota. My work as a historian and European studies scholar is located at the intersection of political and economic history of Europe in the 20th and 21st centuries, and in its present and the recent past.
