A distinguished panel gathers to discuss the protest movements that have emerged in Russia since the parliamentary elections of 4 December 2011. Triggered by revelation of widespread election fraud, these protests have articulated unprecedentedly public criticism of the party in power in the months preceding the presidential elections on 4 March. Among the topics that panelists will address are: the emergence of new political languages; the role of new media in organizing the opposition; the relevance of the Ukrainian model of ‘orange’ revolution; and the ways in which today’s opposition engages with (or ignores) the past.
