Natalia Samutina and Boris Stepanov participated in the international conference "Publishing differently. Small publishers, independent journalists and bloggers in Russia" at Paris-Sorbonne University (October 1–2, 2015). The purpose of the conference was to analyse these independent, critical channels of publication in present-day Russia. Who produces this different material? What civic and political alternatives do they represent? What conflicts and compromises exist between them and the dominant players? To answer these questions, presenters doscussed and analysed alternative publishing channels in Russia, in journalism, publishing or blogs. The aim was to analyse not only their break with the dominant patterns but also the compromises and hybrid situations that arise from their mutual relationship, as well as to examine the emergence of alternative publications since the final decades of the Soviet Union.
