Russian Cultural Studies: An Introduction


In a wide-ranging account of a variety of cultural forms and site of cultural production -- literature, cinema, radio, television, the visual art, journalism, advertising and consumerism, music theatre, the Church -- this groundbreaking book gives greater prominence to the processes of cultural reception than in previous texts. In essays by an international roster of specialists, the volume spotlights the role images of national identity, gender politics, youth culture and the interactions of public and private consciousness have played in the formation of cultural forms in the USSR and post-communist Russia.
