Club for internet and society enthusiasts is an informal network of researchers who are interested in internet.
Rather wide word Ā«researchersĀ» means scholars, business research specialists, artists, journalists, IT-specialists etc.

Since 2015 we organise seminars, reading clubs, conferences, online schools, study expeditions and finally, research initiatives.
We collaborate with universities, journals, companies, NGO and museums in different parts of Russia and beyond.

Our key idea is to develop Internet studies as a interdisciplinary field. As a club we provide a common space for knowledge production, where people from different spheres are involved. We use scientific method, but keep the discussion opened.
