Уровень медиаграмотности населения в регионах России: сравнительный анализ
Zircon Research Group leads the project of studying the level of media literacy among the citizens of Russian regions from 2009.
In 2014 the procedure of the project had been revised and developed to update and widen the range of skills known as modern media literacy, such as the ability to search for information, ability to filter and operate critically with the information received, etc.
In 2016 instead of consolidated Russian survey the representative surveys of citizens were held in 10 Russian pilot regions, which allowed to compare the level of media literacy among the regions.
The survey shows that there are several leading regions of Russia with the higher levels of information and media literacy – these are Sverdlovsk region and Omsk region, as well as Moscow. The regions with the lowest rates of media literacy are Osetia – Alania and Astrakhan region.
As a result of the survey, the links between media landscape, media diversity and the level of media literacy were found. One of the possible prospects of the study can be the list of recommendations for the regions to develop their media literacy development programs.

This volume discusses post-socialist urban transport functioning and development in Russia, within the context of the country’s recent transition towards a market economy. Over the past twenty-five years, urban transport in Russia has undergone serious transformations, prompted by the transitioning economy. Yet, the lack of readily available statistical data has led to a gap in the inclusion of Russia in the body of international transport economics research. By including ten chapters of original, cutting-edge research by Russian transport scholars, this book will close that gap. Discussing topics such as the relationship between urban spatial structure and travel behavior in post-soviet cities, road safety, trends and reforms in urban public transport development, transport planning and modelling, and the role of institutions in post-soviet transportation management, this book provides a comprehensive survey of the current state of transportation in Russia. The book concludes with a forecast for future travel development in Russia and makes recommendations for future policy. This book will be of interest to researchers in transportation economics and policy as well as policy makers and those working in the field of urban and transport planning.

Several approaches to the concept of fatherhood present in Western sociological tradition are analyzed and compared: biological determinism, social constructivism and biosocial theory. The problematics of fatherhood and men’s parental practices is marginalized in modern Russian social research devoted to family and this fact makes the traditional inequality in family relations, when the father’s role is considered secondary compared to that of mother, even stronger. However, in Western critical men’s studies several stages can be outlined: the development of “sex roles” paradigm (biological determinism), the emergence of the hegemonic masculinity concept, inter-disciplinary stage (biosocial theory). According to the approach of biological determinism, the role of a father is that of the patriarch, he continues the family line and serves as a model for his ascendants. Social constructivism looks into man’s functions in the family from the point of view of masculine pressure and establishing hegemony over a woman and children. Biosocial theory aims to unite the biological determinacy of fatherhood with social, cultural and personal context. It is shown that these approaches are directly connected with the level of the society development, marriage and family perceptions, the level of egality of gender order.
