My previous studies include:

* BSSc and MSSc (University of Helsinki). Main focus on communications and media, especially representations of ethnicity, identity politics, intercultural encounters, multiculturalism and racism. In my Master’s Thesis I analysed discourses of the Roma minority in Finnish newspaper articles.

* BTh and MTh (University of Helsinki). Focus on systematic theology and especially postcolonial theologies and liberation theologies. In my Master’s Thesis I studied George E.
