“Constructing Socialism From Within: Entertainment and Media in the Soviet Home”
My talk will explore the daily lived condition of real existing socialism during the latter part of the Soviet period. I will engage with official ideology while also showing how Soviet citizens shaped political discourse from the bottom-up by writing letters to local newspapers,television journals and local local radio stations.
