As a researcher Polina Kolozaridi studies people’s attitudes towards the technologies and media that together make up what we refer to as the internet. This seminar will present some of the results of Russian case-studies, intended to address a few key questions: why and how do people change their attitudes towards technology, how are group norms elaborated, and when do attitudes become a political question?
