Club for internet and society enthusiasts is an informal network of researchers who are interested in the internet. We use the word "researchers" in a broad sense: we mean scholars, business research specialists, artists, journalists, IT-specialists and other people who try to understand the relationships between our society and the internet.

Since 2015 we organise seminars, reading sessions, conferences, online schools, expeditions and research initiatives. We collaborate with universities, journals, companies, NGO and museums in different parts of Russia and beyond. Our key aim is to develop studies of the internet as an interdisciplinary field in Russia.
What do we do

We study:
— internet in different Russian regions
— youtube-bloggers
— parents online-communities, early Russian web
— discourses about and imaginaries of the internet
— Soviet influences on the nowaday's internet.

We organise online schools, seminars and a reading club.

In 2018 we have translated and localised an online-course Why we post about social media around the world.

We also have an online library and guidelines for internet researchers.

Since 2016 each year we hold an international conference Internet Beyond with a variety of formats and speakers. We try to make a useful experience for everybody and make conference an event for learning and networking.

Every week we arrange meetings in Moscow: seminars or reading clubs.
blog & digest

In 2017−2018, we monthly published a thematic digest about the Internet studies. You can read the archive here.

And now we have a telegram blog (rus). We write about good books, articles, conferences, our research projects, events and publications.
