Ksenia Ermoshina

Born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, in 1988, I've started my academic career at the faculty of philosophy at the Saint-Petersburg State University, working on the concepts of "chaos" and "miracles" (from 2005 to 2010). In 2008-2010 I was studying political sociology at the French University College (CUF) where I won a scholarship to make my Master research in Paris, at the University Paris 5. I got my Master degree in 2011 and spent one year in my native city, taking part in the anti-Putin movement and making a fieldwork about the usage of mobile applications by russian activists. In summer 2012 I've got a scholarship for PhD studies and entered the Center of Sociology of Innovations (MinesParisTech), famous for its actor-network approach. At the CSI I am studying the process of social and technical innovation experimented and deployed within several arenes of mobilization in Russia, France and Canada and I am especially focusing on the practices of usage of mobile applications as tools of citizen counterpower, citizen expertise and control over the public services. She is also performing experimental electronic music and knows the activist scene in Russia very well.
