Putin, Russia, and the Media: Journalism in Contemporary Russia

October 1, 2019, 7:00 PM

Free

At least 21 journalists have been killed in Russia since Putin became president in 2000, and 58 since the early 1990s. Also given state control of the media, renewed protests against the administration, and growing economic and political problems at home, what are the prospects for journalists in present-day Russia who wish to write about these subjects? How can we understand the government’s attacks — physical, psychological and political — against the free press? Join Professor of History Paul Josephson for this lecture sponsored by the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs.
