New knowledge about Russia.The new issue of ‘Universe of Russia’ (2016, No. 4) has been released

The new issue of  'Universe of Russia' covers the issues of social and economic transformations in post-socialist countries, education and educational reforms in contemporary Russia, and the issues of subjective social status and identity formation.

In the new issue we have managed to bring together both Russian and non-Russian authors (UK, Belarus and France), which is part of the journal’s mission to provide a broader outlook of Russia, its internal diversity and the world that surrounds it. The current issue features three thematic sections.

The first one focuses on the consequences of social and economic transformations in post-socialist countries. It opens with the article by D. Lane, who compares the outcomes of transformations based on variety of sources (official statistics and survey data) across a wide range of countries. The second article is more specific and contains analysis of changes in Belorussian agriculture by R. Hervouet and A. Kurilo, who base their arguments on in-depth ethnographic observations. This article is further commented by M. Chernysh, who critically engages with the arguments of Hervouet and Kurilo.

The second section focuses on the issues of education. In this section M. Kurbatova reflects on the reforms of higher education in Russia as a project instigated primarily by and for the Russian bureaucracy; D. Didenko and Z. Dorofeeva formally explore the scales and returns to adult education in Russia; and S. Kosaretsky et al. discuss the evolution of educational policies in Russia in the context of social inequality.

The third section focuses on the issues of subjective social status and identity formation. A. Vanke and I. Tartakovskaya explore the transformation of masculinity among Russian workers, and A. Zudina investigates the dynamics of subjective social status in the case of unemployment.

The issue closes with a regular review article, in which N. Pliskevich reflects on the search for the new economic strategy by discussing the works and ideas of Evsitgneev and Evstigneeva.

The reader should be has brought together authors coming from various parts of Russia (Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Kemerovo).
