I research Russian TV documentaries
This page is devoted to the Russian TV documentary films of the 2000s. Advocates of modern teledokumentalistika usually avoid them as a matter of course while their critics consider them unworthy of attention.
The bulk of the documentaries that will be presented here is the empirical material for my PhD project Documenting the nation: Documentaries as discursive nation-building tools. There will, however, be many more films that extend beyond the scope of the project.
This website is still work-in-progress. But more information is coming every day.
