(Journal of Sport and Social Issues) Abstract: The article addresses visualizations of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian and international digital media. Drawing on the scholarship on discoursive hegemony, the authors intoduce a concept of hegemonic regime of visibility as a general frame for understanding the dominant ways of visualizing mega-events which comprise elements of attractiveness and enjoyment, on one hand, and surveillance, control, and...

(NPSA | University of Chicago) The introduction to this symposium opens a discussion on the transformation of the liberal international order through studies of regions located at Europe’s margins, where new dynamics of power relations are on the rise and the appeal of illiberal ideas and forms of governance is growing. The symposium’s articles give a variety of analytical perspectives on different types, forms, and modalities of regionalism unfolding in...

(PONARS Eurasia Commentary) The coronavirus pandemic seems to strongly confirm the growing tension between two types of global politics: territorial (geopolitics) and people-centric (biopolitics). The crisis has sharpened the deep conflict between traditional nation-state-based territoriality—with borders, checkpoints and other elements of security infrastructure—and the expanded space of the biopolitical agenda that is emerging beyond national...

(Contemporary Italian Politics) (Co-authored with George Spencer Terry) Abstract: This article seeks to tackle two interrelated issues. First, it explains the nature of the mutual affection of the right wing of Italian politics – exemplified by the Lega – and the Kremlin. Concomitantly, we explore the reasons behind the Lega’s predilection for Putin’s regime, seeing it as part of this party’s public strategy, and look at the factors behind Russia’s...

(International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics | Co-authored by Alexandra Yatsyk) Abstract: In this article we explore the cognitive potential of the intertwined concepts of representation and performativity for studying a series of sportive and cultural mega events hosted by Russia from 2013 to 2019. Authors look at mega event as semiotic spaces generative of messages, symbols and images that might be conceptualised from the interrelated...

(Politics and the Life Sciences) Abstract: In this article, we scrutinize a policy area in which the Russian government has had to react to negative publicity in the last few years, namely, the doping scandal surrounding the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. This scandal uncovered important aspects of Russia’s vulnerability in the global sports milieu, yet so far, it has remained almost unnoticed in the literature on mega sports events in Russia. Our analysis...

(Journal of Contemporary European Studies) (Co-authored with Sandra Fernandes) Abstract: The aim of this special issue is to look at challenges to the EU and NATO and their relations and policies with both member states and neighboring countries, in particular, how recent developments contribute to the new dynamics of center–periphery relations in a wider Europe and the space of Euro-Atlantic institutions. We stem from a need to understand in what sense...

(Journal of Contemporary European Studies) (Co-authored with Sandra Fernandes) Abstract: Estonia and Portugal are small states located at opposite geographical fringes of the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). This article analyses how their NATO and EU memberships matter in escaping the anathema of periphery. We argue that the two countries can be comparable with each other because they share an experience of post-...

(RAD) Abstract: Looking at Narva, the Estonian city with strong Russian roots, through the lens of culture allows us to see it less as a threat and more as an opportunity. Current Estonian policy seeks to Europeanize Narva, making it cool rather than alien. This effort, instead of pushing Russia aside, provides a platform for Russian artists to perform on an European stage and reach an international audience.  Read More © Russian...
