Video ethnography in difficult times

EUSPb students, faculty, and supporters have proclaimed the 'week of the European University'. They inaugurated it today with a public performance in which they laid down a fire hose in front of a monument to Mikhail Lomonosov, known as the father of Russian scholarship. Other events scheduled include a theatrical performance, a photo exhibition, and an academic conference.
Ilia Utekhin, a professor of ethnography at EUSPb, is documenting events surrounding the shutdown in his video blog, which also features interviews with faculty and staff on their academic work and their assessment of the current situation. You can also watch the most recent videos directly from my blog by scrolling to the bottom of the page.
