Our Digital Russia Studies seminar is held on Friday once a month from 12:15 to 13:45 at the Aleksanteri Institute (Unioninkatu 33), 2d floor meeting room.
During seminar 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.
