Overview

In a wide-ranging account of a variety of cultural forms and sites of cultural production—such as literature, cinema, radio, TV, the visual arts, journalism, advertising and consumerism, music, theatre, the Church—this groundbreaking book gives unprecedented prominence to the processes of cultural reception in the USSR and post-communist Russia. Including essays by an international roster of specialists, the volume spotlights the role that images of national identity, gender politics, and youth culture have played in the formation of cultural forms. In this regard, the interaction of Russia's public and private consciousness is also explored.
