The Institute is very pleased to welcome Dr Jarkko Toikkanen as a Visiting Research Fellow at the IMCC in 2011. Jarkko’s post-doctoral research centres around a monograph titled Suspended Failures: The Intermedial Experience of Horror, an investigation into the phenomenon of horror from the viewpoint of words and images in literature from Romanticism to Modernism. His theoretical background is in deconstruction, and the work of Paul de Man in particular, and his aim is to combine this expertise with the study of experience and affectivity in a new way.
His time as a Visiting Research Fellow at the IMCC is generously supported by a full-year stipend from the Alfred Kordelin Foundation in Finland, granted through the Foundations’ Post Doc Pool scheme.
