EPIIC Colloquium Dec. 4, 2014: Ellen Mickiewicz: The Voices of Russia’s Future Leaders [Audio]

Audio/Video

Ellen Mickiewicz is the James R. Shepley professor of public policy studies, professor of political science, and director of the DeWitt Wallace Center for Communications and Journalism of the Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy at Duke University. A specialist on media and politics, especially in the former Soviet Union and Eastern/Central Europe, she is also a fellow of The Carter Center.  Her most recent book is No Illusions: Voices of Russia’s Future Leaders.  She is also the author of "Changing Channels," a study of the role and impact of television in Russia from 1985-1999. It analyzes the rise of modern, televised campaigning in post-Soviet Russia; the use of free television time for unmediated candidate communication with the public; editorial coverage by news organizations; and political advertising. It examines the volatile media market and the persisting contest for political control of television that has made the institutionalization of pluralism extremely difficult.  Dr. Mickiewicz was the first American to be honored by the 120,000-member Journalists Union of Russia for her contribution to the development of democratic media in the region. Her earlier book, "Split Signals: Television and Politics in the Soviet Union," was given the Electronic Media Book of the Year award by the National Association of Broadcasters and the Broadcast Education Association, and she is the author or editor of five other books and numerous journal articles.

EPIIC Class November 13, 2014: Oxana Shevel

Audio/Video

Professor Shevel's research and teaching focus on the post-Communist region surrounding Russia and issues such as nation- and state-building, the politics of citizenship and migration, memory politics, and the influence of international institutions on democratization. She is the author of "Migration, Refugee Policy, and State Building in Postcommunist Europe" (Cambridge 2011), which examines how the politics of national identity and strategies of the UNHCR shape refugee admission policies in the post-Communist region, leading countries to be more or less receptive to refugees. The book received the 2012 American Association of Ukrainian Studies (AAUS) book prize. At present, Professor Shevel is working on a new book project - comparative study of the sources of citizenship policies in new post-Communist states. Articles based on this project were published inComparative Politics in 2009, and in Post-Soviet Affairs in 2012. Oxana Shevel's research has also appeared in the East European Politics and Societies, Europe-Asia Studies, Slavic Review, Political Science Quarterly, Nationality Papers, and in edited volumes.
