    Touch and Affect: Analysing the Archive of Touch Biographies.Marjo Kolehmainen & Taina Kinnunen - 2019 - Body and Society 25 (1):29-56.
    This article examines touch and its significance from an affect studies perspective. Touch makes our bodies more-than-one in a very concrete way, yet in body and affect research it has largely remained a philosophical abstraction, with few empirical explorations. Our theoretical deliberations are based on empirical material consisting of ‘touch biographies’ written by people of various backgrounds in the 2010s in Finland.

    Postfeminist Versions of Equality? An Analysis of Relationship and Sex Counseling Practices in Finland.Marjo Kolehmainen - 2022 - Gender and Society 36 (1):63-87.
    Relationship and sex counseling are pivotal components of the “therapeutization of society,” which has been identified and widely examined as a key transformation of 21st-century modern Western societies. The particular understandings of gender and sexuality that circulate in those practices contribute to the wider everyday conceptions of intimate life and are thus important to investigate from a feminist perspective.
