Current research:

GENDER EQUITY, CONFLICT AND POWER AMONG YOUNG CHILDREN: investigating children’s peer and relationship cultures in the preschool and school (2012-2016 Academy of Finland)

The research will contribute to the understanding of how gender cultures, gendered peer hierarchies, gender conflicts and compassion all mediate and shape children’s relationships with each other. Building on the findings from a previous Finnish and UK pilot project on five and six year olds’ gendered relationship cultures, this research will further investigate how everyday expressions of compassion and cruelty are experienced and negotiated over time from the time the children are six until they are eight. The project will generate qualitative data over three years by using innovative ethnographic, participatory and creative multimedia methods. During the project, findings will be shared with international group of researchers (Dr, doc. Vappu Sunnari, prof. Emma Renold, prof. Jessica Ringrose and dr., assoc. prof. Mindy Blaise) . Findings will be communicated through conference papers and peer-reviewed journal articles and will be made accessible to teachers and other practitioners.
