My name is Sergey Armeyskov. I am a Candidate of Sciences in Culturology (cultural studies). I created Russian Universe back in March 2013 as a blog covering various topics – from art and culture to politics and history – from the Russian perspective, i.e. in relation to and through the lens of Russianness (the way I understand it).
Dr. Robert A. Saunders quoted me in his book Popular Geopolitics & Nation Branding in the Post Soviet Realm, as well as Guy Mettan in Russie-Occident. I’ve also written a post for the Dr. Saunders’ blog on the E-International Relations website.
I was interviewed by the ARD channel for their documentary film about modern Russia (http://www.ardmediathek.de/tv/Reportage-Dokumentation/Der-Traum-vom-guten-Leben-Jelenas-Blic/Das-Erste/Video?bcastId=799280&documentId=50792140).
