Mediating Post-Soviet Difference

From 2012 to 2013 I worked as a research associate in the AHRC-funded project ‘Mediating Post-Soviet Difference’ at the University of Manchester.


The project explored Russian state television’s approach to issues of ethnic tension, migration and religion. I analysed the statistical data gathered and conducted qualitative interviews with famous Russian journalists and media managers.
