  Add to Calendar 2017-06-16 14:30 2017-06-16 16:00 Europe/Paris From Russia with codes: programming migrations in post-Soviet times

Abstract by Mario Biagioli amd Vincent Lepinay:

"From Russia with Codes: Programming Migrations in Post-Soviet Times"

Ours is a study of the cultures and professional communities of software in Russia, and their vast global diasporic movements. This is one the largest, possibly the largest case of high-tech 'brain drain' in recent decades. In addition to studying Russian software engineers and hackers abroad (UK, Finland, US, Israel, etc.), we also look at their various sites and communities in Russia, from the center (Moscow, St Petersburg) to the periphery (Kazan, Siberia, Vladivostok). In doing so, we are engaging questions ranging from innovation studies, migration studies, science and technology studies, Russian studies, but also hacker studies, civic apps movements, and the new trend toward digital political activism.

A book presentation and roundtable in the framework of the cycle “Thinking Sciences at Large. Towards a Connected History of Science”, convened by Stéphane Van Damme in collaboration with the Working Group on the History of Science.
