«Между игрой и реальностью: детские сверхъестественные верования в цифровую эпоху» [Between Play and Reality: Children’s Supernatural Beliefs in the Digital Age] – lecture in Russian
Date
2019-04-19
Summary
Folklorists and anthropologists have explored children's preoccupation with supernatural entities for decades, and the development of the internet has given rise to online video formats for supernatural practices that are popular among children in Russia and beyond. Drawing on ethnographic research in Russian children's summer camps and online digital ethnography, this talk addresses children's supernatural beliefs, play, and imagination. 

A doctoral candidate in anthropology at the European University in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Angelina Kozlovskaia has presented her research at conferences in Russia as well as India, Australia, Finland, Belgium, and Estonia. During Spring 2019 she is a visiting scholar with the Russian and East European Institute and the Russian Studies Workshop.
