Zachris Haaparinne, MA in General History (2014) and MSSc in Political Science (2015), is a PhD student at the Department of History and Ethnology. In his thesis, The voice of the people or raving of the rabble?: A conceptual analysis of petitions and disputes on political representation in Britain and its Thirteen Colonies (1721–1776), he examines the complexities of representative politics and political cultures in Georgian Britain. He argues that political representation was based on continuous negotiations between a multiplicity of agents (though not of symmetrical influence) rather than on consensus or subordination. Haaparinne maintains a special interest in linguistic political history and constructivist approaches, being influenced by scholars such as Quentin Skinner, Reinhart Koselleck, Kari Palonen, and Frank Ankersmit. He focuses on the dynamics of decision-making processes, political agency, and conceptual methodologies.
