susannaI’m professor of Media Studies at University of Turku, Finland. My work has revolved around internet research, affect theory and pornography for the past decade, and more. Recently my interests have been shifting towards materiality, media, sexuality and affect more generally, yet without abandoning porn altogether. I’m currently working on all sorts of book-length projects; one on boredom, distraction and anxiety connected to social media with Michael Petit for MIT Press, another on feminist tactics in social media with Jenny Sundén and yet another on the notion of objectification with Feona Attwood, Alan McKee, John Mercer and Clarissa Smith for Routledge. I’ve just brushed up Not Safe for Work: Sex, Humor, and Risk in Social Media together with Kylie Jarrett and Ben Light for MITP and my solo project, Many Splendored Things: Thinking Sex and Play, is freshly out with Goldsmiths Press. I’m also PI of the Academy of Finland research project, Sexuality and Play in Media Culture (2017-2021). I love kickboxing and good wine, and can be reached at <suspaa(at)utu.fi>
