PEKKA SUUTARI

Professor

Professor of cultural studies


I have studied ethnomusicology and folklore studies at the universities of Helsinki, Gothenburg, Joensuu and Petroszavodsk. Since 1990s I have studied the minority music and cultures as signifying practices and political and aesthetic activities. I have written about Finnish popular music among the Finns in Sweden and contemporary folk music in Petrozavodsk, Russian Karelia. I have conducted research within the contexts of identities, borders, field work, recent history, cultural policies and activities. Recently my studies have been connected with the Karelian language and music as well as Karelian cultural activism.
