GJ Media: Academic Life Hacks

In the new episode of The Garage Journal podcast Anna Kuleshova, the chairwoman of the Scientific Publications Ethics Board, a member of the Russian Academy of Science Commission for Counteracting the Falsification of Scientific Research, and Katya Suverina, an editor of The Garage Journal and a guest lecturer at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, are going to discuss how the system of academic journals and the production of scientific knowledge in Russia exist.

This podcast is about the first issue of the journal focusing on the topic ‘Transitory Parerga: Access and Inclusion in Contemporary Art’. We are talking mainly about the texts of the Russian authors and presenting the ‘map’ of the issue. 

Dmitry Bezuglov is discussing the conceptual framework of the issue with the authors, three interpretations of ‘inclusion’, the competing notions of ‘diversity’ and ‘care’, the non-obvious arrogance of institutions and the difficult mission of the museum – to speak in an accessible way.

Academic Life Hacks is a series of monthly podcasts from The Garage Journal, in which the journal’s editors discuss current issues in the humanities with leading scholars from a variety of fields. In the pilot episode of the podcast, The Garage Journal’s editor-in-chief Vlad Strukov discusses with Serguei Alex Oushakine, a professor at Princeton University and a member of the journal’s Advisory Board, what originality means in the humanities today and how research standards differ in various academic cultures.
