The 31:st Nordic Ethnology and Folklorist Conference was held in Helsinki  August 18-22. We participated with a paper called “Frustrated Mom Kills Dragon. Motherhood, Emotions and Computer Games” presented by Lotta in the session “Gendered Emotions”. In the same session Danish researcher Nina Wittendorf presented a paper on male online poker players, ”’Rigtige mænd spiller da poker!’ Oplevelser, forhandlinger og forskydninger af det maskuline i spillets rum”. Besides meeting colleagues from here and there, which is always nice, there was time to see the  Suomenlinna/Sveaborg, the 250 year old fortress on the UNESCO World heritage list.
