Welcome to Digital Russia Studies!

Digital Russia Studies (DRS) is a  research network uniting scholars of humanities, social and computer sciences working at the intersection of ‘digital’ and ‘social’ in the Russian context.

First, digital Russia studies is the study of Russian society, politics and culture using the methods of digital humanities.

Second, digital Russia studies is a critical investigation of how Russian society, politics and culture are reconfigured in the context of digitalisation, Big Data and algorithmic governance.

During our monthly seminar running throughout Spring 2018, we aim to engage with questions concerning Russian cultural history, contemporary media industries, digital dimensions of Russian politics, as well as East European perspective on Russia. We will also look into established and emerging methods and data practices.
