Per capita GDP can make a difference in a country’s performance in competitive computer gaming, according to a study conducted by researchers at HSE Perm. While a substantial amount of research focuses on traditional sports, few studies have so far examined eSports. Two HSE researchers examined a resource providing information on tournaments, winners and prizes – for country-level determinants of performance in competitive computer gaming.
On March 15, HSE’s School of Cultural Studies welcomed Professor Ian Shapiro from Yale University to talk on two very hot topics: ‘Power and Domination in Political Theory’ and ‘Human Rights in the Contemporary World and Their Prospects’. The presentations were followed by a round table which gave participants further opportunity to engage with this internationally renowned expert in political science. Professor Shapiro’s latest book, Politics against Domination, is soon to be published for the first time in the Russian language.
The new institute is headed by Vasily Klucharev, a professor at the Higher School of Economics, who previously worked as Head of the School of Psychology. Vasily Klucharev told the HSE news team about what the School managed to achieve in four years, what the new institute will do and how attitudes towards psychology and neuroscience are changing.
