Mozolevska has been a UNET Fellow at ZOiS since 2023. Her current project focuses on the role of digital popular culture in the mediatisation of the Russo-Ukrainian war. More precisely, it explores the cultural practices of producing visual narratives in Russian and Ukrainian social media in order to reveal the symbolic, ideological and intertextual potential of the visual discourse of war.
