contributed a paper (4.9) on Russian hackers, various cyberconflicts, and media implicating them in the Climategate hack, which is part of an interesting issue of the journal Digital Icons:


Digital Icons: Studies in Russian, Eurasian and Central European New Media

Issue 4: War, Conflict and Commemoration in the Age of Digital Reproduction


This issue of Digital Icons explores the ways in which wars and conflicts are mediated, commemorated, reported and discussed on the Internet as well as in other forms of new media, including mobile phones, digital broadcasting and computer games. The issue examines the role of new media in understanding, representing, negotiating and remembering (or forgetting) war and terror; the status of testimony, evidence and reportage in the age of digitalreproduction; practices of memory in relation to new information and communication technologies; and structures of feeling that operate in on-line reports and debates around military operations and human suffering.

This issue of Digital Icons is guest-edited by Dr Adi Kuntsman (University of Manchester).
