Book launch: Palgrave Handbook of Digital Russia Studies, on 22 October

Join us to the virtual book launch to celebrate the publication of the open access Palgrave Handbook of Digital Russia Studies!

To receive the link for accessing the event that will take place on 22 October from 17.00 – 18.30 (Helsinki – UTC+3; 16.00 – 17.30 CEST – UTC+2), please register here.

This groundbreaking Handbook, edited by Mariëlle Wijermars together with Daria Gritsenko and Mikhail Kopotev, presents a multidisciplinary perspective on how the ‘digital’ is simultaneously changing Russia and the research methods scholars use to study Russia.

The Palgrave Handbook of Digital Russia Studies provides a critical update on how Russian society, politics, economy, and culture are reconfigured in the context of ubiquitous connectivity and accounts for the political and societal responses to digitalisation. In addition, it answers practical and methodological questions in handling Russian data and a wide array of digital methods. 32 chapters by 42 authors – published in open access thanks to the generous support of the University of Helsinki.

During the event, the editors are joined by several of the contributors who will introduce their chapters. During the Q&A, there will be plenty of opportunities to engage with the speakers, as well as to ask questions to other contributors joining us in the audience. For further details, please see the event announcement.

Reviews of the book:

‘This is the most comprehensive and timely book illuminating the impact of digitalization on all spheres of Russia’s social and cultural life. Through the lens of this Handbook, contemporary Russia emerges in all its complexities and ambiguities.’

Lara Ryazanova-Clarke, University of Edinburgh, UK

‘A profoundly interdisciplinary resource that strikes the perfect balance between breadth and depth. Conceptually rich, analytical smart, and highly informative, the Handbook brings both students and scholars of Russia, Russian digital culture, and digital studies in general, critical insights into a newly emerging discipline.’

Michael S. Gorham, University of Florida, USA
