dear all,

i am happy to announce the publication of the book of research on the 
russian internet. it's a great opportunity for those of you who don't 
speak russian to get acquainted with the digital cultures of the 
runet. the volume coves various issues, from aesthetics, diaspora, 
cultural identity, communities, and intelligenzia to gender, public 
sphere, polit technology, propaganda, pornography, and many more.

i myself contributed to this volume with the analysis of a new 
literary trend that i call "mate lit" (or male literature) - a 
bizarre mixture of brutality, protest and patriarchic mainstream - 
developed entirely through
an online platform and becoming influencial in the offline domains.
