Control + Shift.


Public and Private Usages of the Russian Internet

Dear All,

I am happy to announce the publication of the book of research on the russian internet. it's a great opportunity for those of you who don't speak russian to get acquainted with the digital cultures of the runet. The volume coves various issues, from aesthetics, diaspora, cultural identity, communities, and intelligenzia to gender, public sphere, polit technology, propaganda, pornography, and many more.

I myself contributed to this volume with the analysis of a new literary trend that I call "mate lit" (or male literature) - a bizarre mixture of brutality, protest and patriarchic mainstream - developed entirely through an online platform and becoming influencial in the offline domains.

"Control + Shift. Public and Private Usages of the Russian Internet". Eds. Henrike Schmidt, Katy Teubener, Natalja Konradova; Norderstedt: Books on Demand, 2006; ISBN 3-8334-4988-8; Price: 24,90 EUR. The volume is entirely available for download

enjoy your reading,
olga goriunova
