IMARES Workshop: Big Brother, where are you?: Exploring the role of conspiracy theories in Russian popular culture and politics

IMARES workshop newThe IMARES program at the EUSP has opened its annual Workshop Series of public lectures this semester by hosting on the 8th of September Dr. Ilya Yablokov, a Teaching Fellow in Russian Studies at the University of Leeds. Despite the announced title of the open lecture which began with a rather rhetorical "Big Brother, where are you?" question, instead of identifying the 'Big Brother' Yablokov intended again to explore and describe the role of conspiracy theories in Russian popular culture and politics as he did during his first visit to the EUSP in Spring, 2014.
