Through the Looking Glass

Women in Science and Research

 

Through the looking glass is a non-profit platform where we hope to listen, learn and share stories from people in academia. We interview people in science and research who work in Finland and beyond. Through these interviews, we hope to understand the rules of this peculiar world, especially from a gender-perspective.

The name Through The Looking Glass comes from the novel by Lewis Carroll. The book explains the strange and mysterious world Alice finds when she steps through a mirror.

About

IMG_20200120_170551_edited.jpg

We are two fellow PhD students from very different fields. Maija Greis from the world of Food Sciences and Sohvi Kangasluoma from Social Sciences. However, when we hang out, we often end up wondering the same topic: how (on earth) the academic world works. As PhD students we can easily relate to Alice in wonderland. The academic world seems an exciting yet odd place where unseen and unfamiliar rules dominate. This world is full of interesting and talented people who's stories should be heard & shared.


This platform publishes monthly interviews from women in academia.
