My thesis seeks to answer the question of how states limit the professional autonomy of journalists during times of political transformation. I conducted fieldwork in Crimea, Moscow, and Kyiv in 2016-2017, interviewing journalists who have worked on disputed territories and who have lived and worked through periods of regime change. My main field site, Crimea, is a peninsula on the Black Sea that was occupied and annexed by Russia in 2014. Since then, Russia and Ukraine have engaged in a territorial dispute over the region. I will discuss security issues I faced in the field, conceptual issues relating to my relationships with study participants, and open questions I am still facing as I analyse my data.

This talk is part of the Fieldwork Seminar: Methodologies in the 'field' series.
