‘Patriotic (Non) Consumption: Food, Fashion and Media’, special issue of Studies in Russian, Eurasian and Central European New Media (www.digitalicons.org), guest-edited by Olga Gurova, Ekaterina Kalinina, Jessie Labov and Vlad Strukov
Patriotic consumption can appear in different spheres, from high arts to popular culture, and engage with many actors in discussion over contested meanings. Fine art and ‘culinary art’, streetwear and screenwear, performance and self-performance on social media intersect with politics and ideology and produce cultural forms in which these contested meanings become apparent. In our special issue we focus on these political and politicised contexts of patriotic (non)consumption. We explore how these processes have been documented in social media where users reveal their ideological allegiances by making comments about what otherwise appears to be mundane objects and practices.
The issue is published in two clusters (see issues 16 and 17). Here we list entries that appear in the first cluster.

"Освободив обоих от занимаемых должностей и лишив их возможности высказываться от имени Церкви, Московский патриархат послал недвусмысленный сигнал всему церковному сообществу: церковное руководство не намерено мириться ни с либеральными, ни с националистическими взглядами — как расходящимися с идеей единства Церкви и ставящими под угрозу основы русского православия."
today Ukrainian government banned access to major search engines and social media sites that are based in the Russian Federation. I wonder if Ukraine has the technical capabilities of enforcing the law. And of so, what it says about Ukraine's media system, its origins and implications for Ukrainian struggle for freedom(s). In simple terms, if they can ban access to Yandex, what else can they ban? ... See MoreSee Less

Digital Futures: Film and Media and the EU Digital Single Market
Film and media companies carry a double burden. On the one hand, they are under pressure from large corporations such as Google and Apple that impose a mandatory use of digital standards and consume advertising revenue. On the other, current EU proposals suggest that individuals and businesses should be able to exercise online activities under conditions of fair competition, irrespective of their nationality or place of residence. This workshop brings together industry experts, representatives of intergovernmental organisations, curators of cultural institutions and university experts to discuss future developments in film and media industries in the digital era. Contributions will include presentations by: Matthijs Berman (Principal adviser, OSCE Office of the Representative on Freedom of the Media) Gareth Cross (Head of Distribution and Analytics, the Daily Telegraph) Christopher Holliday (film researcher at King’s College London) Col Needham (the Founder and CEO of IMDb) Dina Iordanova (Professor of Film Studies at the University of St, Andrews) Chris Fell (Director of the Leeds International Film Festival).
