The laboratory has been researching risk behaviours of adolescents for quite a long time. We have been using methods of social network analysis that allow us to track the changes in behaviours and relations of young people who study together.
On 13-15th September the European Association for Research on Adolescence Conference was held at the University of Ghent, Belgium. On these three days there were many speeches, poster sessions, and keynotes.
I have been living in Berlin for the last six months, and it is only now that I can finally say I am more or less at ease with the city.
Hi everyone! It has already been a month since I moved to the Netherlands and started my studies at Utrecht University.
Laboratory of Sociology in Education and Science has just held its 10th student expedition. Student expeditions are a kind of tradition for the laboratory. It started in 2006 from our trip to Sosnovo (Leningrad oblast). Back then this was a unique experience for HSE. Right now it is quite standard and is probably the most popular form of scientific work in different campuses and at different faculties. Our university is part of the “Re-discover Russia” program, which sponsors such expeditions to different regions of Russia on a competitive basis. This year the Foundation for Educational Innovation supported 68 applications.
We would like to share our impressions of the summer student expedition, which is held in the Kaluga region of Russia. Moscow campus of Higher School of Economics has been implementing the “Rediscovering Russia" program for several years, which funds student research expeditions to different regions of Russia on a competitive basis.
The big day has finally come! With suitcases in their hands and trembling hearts in their chests, the team of Sociology of Education and Science Laboratory and a group of sociology students have started their journey to Kaluga Oblast to study rural settlements and life of local adolescents.
Students from the study programme ‘Sociology and Social Informatics’ Anastasia Menshikova and Olga Silutina presented their research papers at an Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) conference dedicated to Web Science.

We have fabulous news: our Laboratory is bringing back student expeditions! For eight years our laboratory had been organising student expeditions to small Russian cities and villages to study social inequality, educational trajectories and local communities. Since then we have taken a three-year break to take a deep breath and reflect on our experiences. But this summer we are going to embark on an expedition again. This time we will have more fresh topics and participants.
My year in Russia was amazing!
