EXILE: Strategies and Methods of Knowledge Production on Russia in Times of War, Repression, and Propaganda
1 November, Ofelas Arena, Kirkenes
Bringing together journalists and academic experts on Russia, all constrained by censorship, repression, and outside position, EXILE poses the burning question of how to keep up solid knowledge building on Russia from without. Which fields of enquiry and research are most important in the current situation, and how do we assess ethical and security aspects of researching Russian realities from the outside? How can scholars and journalists outside Russia learn from each other and work together to benefit knowledge production? The seminar comprises panels with Russian scholars and journalists in exile as well as Nordic Russia experts and correspondents. An evening event featuring cultural producers and civil activists will address Kirkenes as exile destination.
