Now & New

– I am the editor of the newly launched ‘The Garage Journal: Studies in Art, Museums & Culture’. It is is an independent interdisciplinary academic platform that advances critical discussions about contemporary art, culture, and museum practice in the Russian and global contexts. It publishes original empirical, theoretical, and speculative research in a variety of genres, celebrating innovative ways of presentation. Fully peer-reviewed, The Garage Journal provides a source book of ideas for an international audience.

– with Arja Rosenholm and Markku Lehtimaki I am working on a volume on Arctic visual culture (due to appear in winter 2021). My section is on the haptic visuality of the North, which is a conceptual extension of a piece on Sakha (Yakutia) cinema.

– Since 2009, I have been the editor of ‘Studies in Russian, Eurasian and Central European New Media (, which is an online publication that appears twice a year. The journal is a multi-media platform that explores new media as a variety of information flows, varied communication systems and networked communities. The main goal of the journal is to disseminate research on new media in the region across global communities of scholars, media practitioners and the general public. Contributions to Digital Icons cover a broad range of topics related to the impact of digital and electronic technologies on politics, economics, society, culture and the arts in Russia, Eurasia and Central Europe. The journal publishes works that explore developments in information and communications technologies and their impact on the governance, economy and cultural life of the region. Submissions focusing on internet use and new media forms among the various diasporas of the region are also welcome.
