Jaakko Seppälä

University of Helsinki
Dr. Jaakko Seppälä is the chair of Finnish Society for Cinema Studies and a researcher at the School of Film and Television Studies, University of Helsinki. He is also a member of the editorial board of Lähikuva, a Finnish language journal on film and media studies. Seppälä’s major research interests lie in the field of film style, transnational film history and close textual analysis of meanings. He wrote his dissertation on the import and reception of silent Hollywood films in Finland. In his work for the Transnational History of Finnish Cinema project that was funded by Academy of Finland, he built a method for statistically and qualitatively analysing the style of large bodies of films from a comparative perspective. He is currently exploring Aki Kaurismäki’s film style. Seppälä has contributed to anthologies and journals including Nordic Genre Film: Small Nation Film Cultures in the Global Marketplace (eds. Tommy Gustafsson & Pietari Kääpä, Edinburgh University Press 2015), Finnish Cinema: A Transnational Enterprise (ed. Henry Bacon, Palgrave 2016), Journal of Scandinavian Cinema and Projections.
