2020 Webinars

Monday, July 20, 1:00-2:30 pm EDT
Zoom Discussion - “Fieldwork interruptus? Research in the Time of COVID”

This event invites you to join a group of panelists – all social scientists with track records of in-person research in Russia – as they reflect on the ways their work has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has disrupted our projects in myriad ways, but COVID-era constraints intersect with existing challenges of in-person research in Russia, particularly on topics of political sensitivity. Panelists will reflect on the challenges of this moment, as well as the silver linings and offer any tips and insights they’ve learned along the way.

We see this event as a brainstorming session, so following brief presentations, we encourage the participants to contribute to a broader discussion about the political and ethical challenges of research in politically sensitive contexts, particularly during a pandemic.

Come join us to share and connect! This session may be of particular interest to graduate students.

Participants:

Julie Hemment (Anthropology, UMass Amherst)
Lauren McCarthy (Political Science/Legal studies, UMass Amherst)
Graeme Robertson (Political Science, UNC Chapel Hill)
Doug Rogers (Anthropology, Yale)

Chair: Jan Kubik (Political Science, Rutgers/ UCL)
