The series Mass Culture & Entertainment in Russia comprises collections of extremely rare, and often unique, materials that offer a stunning insight into the dynamics of cultural and daily life in imperial and Soviet Russia. The series is organized along six thematic lines that together cover the full spectrum of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian culture, ranging from the penny press and high-brow art journals in pre-Revolutionary Russia, to children's magazines and publications on constructivist design in the early Soviet Union.
The materials brought together in this series are essential to Slavists and historians, but should be equally appealing to political scientists, art historians, and sociologists who no longer view mass culture as the arrière-garde of cultural evolution, but as a highly complex phenomenon that deserves to be studied in its own right.
The first sub-series "Film" comprises periodicals and archival material dating from the first decades of Russian cinema (1907-1940). The second "Theater" is devoted to Russian and Russian-Jewish theater history. The third "Entertainment and Leisure Activities" contains journals that reflect the changing lifestyles of the emerging middle class of pre-Revolutionary Russia. The fourth "Mass Media" has a more outspoken diachronic dimension. It includes the highly successful collection Gazety-Kopeiki, as well as lifestyle magazines and children's journals from various periods. The fifth sub-series "Everyday Life" focuses on the hardship of life under Stalin and his somewhat more liberal successors. Finally, the sixth "High Culture/Art" provides an exhaustive overview of the historic avant-garde in Russia, Ukraine, and Central Europe, which despite its elitist nature pretended to cater to a mass audience.
