TANAKA Yumi Assistant Professor
Research Subject

I have done fieldworks in North Karelia and in several regions of Lapland. I study the spiritual and material connections between nature and culture, especially trees and people by customs, narratives, and making. I also research about crafts and the depiction of “nature” during the National Romanticism in Finland from the perspective of art history.

Research Fields
Anthropology, trees and people, art, Research of the Nordic indigenous people
