To date, Russian cosplay community has thousand members from all over the country, and the word "cosplay" is widely used in media. Despite its prominence, cosplay remains a fan practice or, using Henry Jenkins’ term, participatory practice. In participatory culture (or cultures) fans not only consume media content but actively interpret it and make their own. This article attempts to restore the history of Russian cosplay – its development and its perception. Using media publications from newspapers and magazines that are not directly related to mass culture, we gain a view from outside the community and analyze different context of the usage of the word "cosplay". In sum, we try to answer the question if russian cosplay community and cosplay itself are stigmatized as a part of participatory culture or not.
This paper aims at answering one central question: why there is considerable demand for the labor of migrants in Russian rural communities in spite of widespread anti-migrant attitudes and the absence of significant differences between costs of migrant labor and local labor? It is argued that disintegration of Soviet state-farm-based and industry-based communities and spread of dacha estates in 1990s resulted in emergence of certain emigrant niches (forestry and construction industries, agriculture, and communal services) in the rural North-Western Russia by the beginning of 2000s. Network organization of migration (D. Massey), integration of migrant community into local rural community, and absence of secure labor opportunities outside migrant community create relationships of enforceable trust (A. Portes) which provide incentives for migrants to follow certain labor ethics and transform them into more disciplined occupants of non-prestigious job positions, than local under-class people. Mechanisms of immigrant niche formation (R. Waldinger) and negative labeling close certain segment of unskilled labor market for local population.

The Arctic sea-ice reached record lows in 2007, and again in 2012. In the international news media, these moments were reflected via striking images of polar bears, crumbling icechunks and the use of more alarmist metaphors about global climate change. Through these narratives, and despite the periodic disappearance of climate change from media reports due to issue fatigue, a sharper narrative of climate change has entered public discourse: a new global reality where the future is no longer a given. Going beyond media studies as well as descriptive or highly scientific accounts of the impacts of climate change in the Arctic, this book explores how both historical and contemporary mediations, scientific narratives and satellite technology simultaneously capture and reconstruct this new reality of the Anthropocene, where human activities shape the planet. By highlighting the linkagesbetween science, media, environmental change and geopolitics, the informed contributors to the volume invite the reader to reflect on what is local and what is global in today's connected mediatized world.
