“Liber Primus”, new book series
“Liber Primus” is a new series at Academic Studies Press designed for authors early in their careers, in many cases assistant professors coming up for tenure. A primary goal of the series is to create an outlet for outstanding academic books in our field at a time when university presses, forced to focus on “bottom lines” and trim their lists accordingly, are increasingly unlikely, regardless of the project, to take on proposals from untested, younger, less published scholars in our field. The series does not promote any specific scholarly-critical methodology, nor does it limit itself to any period, genre, or author grouping in Russian/Slavic literature/culture. Primary criteria will be quality of the research, conceptual robustness, clarity of thought, and elegance of style. Interdisciplinary projects are welcome. The vetting process will be rigorous and “blind,” with readers normally including a specialist with appropriate expertise and a member of the editorial board. It is the editor’s and editorial board’s hope that the seriousness of the review process and the attractiveness and attention to detail accompanying the finished product will give the books in this series the sort of “imprimatur” that deans and tenure committees will take into account as they shape the future of the discipline and the profession.Series Editor: David Bethea, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Editorial Board: Caryl Emerson, Princeton University, Svetlana Evdokimova, Brown University, John MacKay, Yale University, Irina Reyfman, Columbia University, Justin Weir, Harvard University. Anyone interested in submitting a book proposal should contact Sharona Vedol at ASP (sharona.vedol@academicstudiespress.com).


«Военный журнализм в России и в СНГ»: спациальный выпуск The Journal of Power Institutions in Post-Soviet Societies (#16, 2014)

В социологии средств массовой информации тема военного журнализма занимает особое место, так как затрагивает специфические вопросы политики и государственных учреждений. Это особенно верно в применении к СССР, где цензура, проблемы идеологии, замешанной в конфликтах и недоступность армии составляли препятствия для ознакомления с процессом производства информации в военной области. После падения СССР можно говорить о процессе либерализации и освобождения русских СМИ, в частности в области военного журнализма. Некоторые журналы советской армии продолжают свое существование (например, Красная Звезда), в то же время появляются гражданские обозрения, посвященные военным вопросам (Независимое военное обозрение). Параллельно этому, новые независимые СМИ открывают военные рубрики, заполняемые гражданскими специализированными корреспондентами. Атмосфера пост-советского периода способствовала медиатизации военных вопросов. Интерес к этим вопросам связан, в первую очередь, с беспокойством о будущем армии. В медиа-хронике подробно освещались проблемы демилитаризации военного производства, управления ядерным оружием, сокращения штатов, борьбы с насилием в казармах (дедовщина), – все эти темы способствовали развитию журнализма, специализирующегося на военных вопросах. Также, многочисленные национальные конфликты, вспыхнувшие на пост-советской территории (в Чечне, а также в Молдавии, в Нагорном Карабахе и, в сравнительно недавнем прошлом, в Грузии), поставили вопрос о медиатическом освещении. « Война – один из привилегированных моментов для производства медиатической информации», – отмечает Бизимана / A.J. Bizimana . Но это также момент, в который обостряется противостояние между принципом свободы прессы и мерами институционного контроля СМИ.

Настоящий выпуск Pipss посвящен военному журнализму в СССР и СНГ, в исторической, социологической и политической перспективах. В нем будут рассмотрены границы компромисса и противостояния между свободой прессы и ограничениями, связанными собственно с военным журнализмом. Основные темы выпуска:
– История военного журнализма в России.
– Либерализация военных СМИ в России и СНГ.
– Новые формы контроля военных журналистов.

“Conceptualising GULAG: Visible and Invisible Spaces of Continuity and Contemporary Practices of Remembrance”: Special issue of International journal “Siberian Historical Studies”, Tomsk State University (Russia)

Totalitarian states of twentieth century produced the sites of mass violence and such exemplary places of modern biopolitics as concentration camps. In the aftermath these sites continue to serve as tangible reminders of atrocities and provide important evidence for public recognition and remembrance of victims’ suffering. Recent memory studies have demonstrated how remembrance of mass violence across regions and cultures took various shapes ranging from politics of victimisation and heroism to collective silence and selective amnesia. Given that in Russia memory about GULAG remains at the margins of public and official discourse and as a social fact has not yet received elaborate scholarly interpretation, the special issue seeks to address this underexplored area by examining the issue of continuity of unresolved GULAG past in the present and the ways it manifests and unfolds through spontaneous or unofficial forms of remembrance, symbolic imageries, localised interaction with abandoned and re-appropriated spaces and territories of former GULAG camps. We welcome contributions in the disciplines of social and cultural anthropology, sociology and history that engage broadly with the legacy of GULAG and its contemporary social dimensions, i.e. continuity of social practices, visible and invisible aspects of GULAG legacy as well as voiced and silenced memories, local experiences of remembrance and forgetting.

Transgender Studies Quarterly is seeking proposals for their issue “Making Transgender Count.” It invites scholarly essays that tackle transgender inclusion and/or gender identity/expression measurement and sampling methods in population studies, demography, epidemiology, and other social sciences. Submission deadline is December 31, 2013.

As a relatively new social category, the very notion of a “transgender population” poses numerous intellectual, political, and technical challenges. Who gets to define what transgender is, or who is transgender? How are trans people counted–and by whom and for whom are they enumerated? Why is counting transgender members of a population seen as making that population’s government accountable to those individuals? What is at stake in “making transgender count”–and how might this process vary in different national, linguistic, or cultural contexts? This issue of TSQ seeks to present a range of approaches to these challenges–everything from analyses that generate more effective and inclusive ways to measure and count gender identity and/or transgender persons, to critical perspectives on quantitative methodologies and the politics of what Ian Hacking has called “making up people.” In many countries, large-scale national health surveys provide data that policy-makers rely on to monitor the health of the populations they oversee, and to make decisions about the allocation of resources to particular groups and regions–yet transgender people remain invisible in most such data collection projects. When administrative gender is conceived as a male/female binary determined by the sex assigned at birth, the structure, and very existence, of trans sub Populations can be invisibilized by government data collection efforts. Without the routine and standardized collection of information about transgender populations, some advocates contend, transgender people will not “count” when government agencies make decisions about the health, safety and public welfare of the population. But even as more agencies become more open to surveying transgender populations, experts and professionals are not yet of one mind as to what constitutes “best practices” for sampling methods that will accurately capture respondents’ gender identity/expression, and the diversity of transgender communities. In still other quarters, debates rage about the ethics of counting trans people in the first place. They invite proposals for scholarly essays that tackle transgender inclusion and/or gender identity/expression measurement and sampling methods in population studies, demography, epidemiology, and other social sciences. They also invite submissions that critically engage with the project of categorizing and counting “trans” populations. Potential topics might include: * best practices and strategies for transgender inclusion and sampling in quantitative research; * critical reflections on past, current, and future data collection efforts; * the potential effects of epidemiological research on health and other disparities in trans communities; * who counts/gets counted and who does not: occlusions of disability, race, ethnicity, class, gender in quantitative research on trans communities; * the tension between the contextually specific meaning of transgender identities and the generality and fixity that data collection requires of its constructs and social categories; *implications of linguistic, geographical, and cultural diversity in definitions of transgender and the limits of its applicability; * critical engagements with of the biopolitics of enumerating the population.
