This is an informal research blog of The Institute for Advanced Social Research at the University of Tampere, Finland (please follow this link for the official pages of the IASR). The Institute for Advanced Social Research, in turn, is the research collegium of the University of Tampere.
The research collegium was founded on 28 November 2002 under the name University of Tampere Centre for Advanced Studies (UTACAS) and the first group of six Fellows started its term in August 2003. The name of the institute was changed into the Institutute for Advanced Social Research, IASR, in the the process of an extensive reform of the administrative structure of the university in 2010. Today, the IASR hosts 25–30 Fellows annually.
The present IASRblogger is Marianna Muravyeva, who is a Senior Research Fellow working on gender, sexuality, and violence cross time and space. If you have any suggestions or ideas, contact us through this blog.
