Ilona Pikkanen is project manager of SKS's research department. Her doctoral thesis (2013) dealt with historiographical narratology, and presented a close textual reading of the narratives and strategies of Eliel Aspelin-Haapkylä’s paradigmatic book on the history of the Finnish theatre (I-IV, 1906-1910). At present Pikkanen is studying transtemporal history culture of medieval and early modern popular uprisings in Finland and Sweden from c. 1600 to c. 1900. Pikkanen is also one of the editors of Romantik.
