Short bio

Andrei Zavadski is a PhD-candidate and researcher in the Emmy Noether Junior Research Group “Mediating (Semi-)Authoritarianism – The Power of the Internet in the Post-Soviet World.” He graduated from Moscow State University of International Relations (MGIMO-University) with a BA in Regional Studies (2009)). He also holds a dual MA in Public History from Moscow Higher School of Social and Economic Sciences and Manchester University (2014). His master’s thesis, Remembering Today and Tomorrow: Memory of the Holocaust in the Jewish Museums of Moscow, was a comparative study of three museums and ways in which they differently mediate memory of World War Two and the Holocaust. In 2010-2015, Andrei worked as the editor of the “MGIMO Experts Speak” column, on MGIMO-University’s website, which provides space for commentary on current international affairs. He also worked at Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design (2011-2012) and Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow (2013). In 2014, Andrei curated the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Russia’s project Unknown Russia: Powered by Entrepreneurs.
