About Suvi Rautio

Suvi's academic interests cover a range of fields that help her unpack the social orderings of marginalised populations living in China. These include collective violence and memory retrieval, rural restoration and place-making, masculine self-hood and Chinese state-society relations. Guided by stories of her own family history, Suvi is currently working on a four-year Postdoctoral project that applies intimate ethnography to look at the transmission of memory and loss among Beijing’s intellectual class during the Maoist era.

Dr. Suvi Rautio is an anthropologist of China.
