Insiders and Outsiders in Russian Cinema by Stephen M. Norris
Book DescriptionIdentifying who was "inside" and who was "outside" the Soviet/Russian body politic has been a matter of intense and violent urgency, especially in the high Stalinist and post-Soviet periods. It is a theme encountered prominently in film. Employing a range of interpretive methods practiced in Russian/Soviet film studies, Insiders and Outsiders in Russian Cinema highlights the varied ways that Russian and Soviet cinema constructed otherness and foreignness. While the essays explore the "us versus them" binary well known to students of Russian culture and the ways in which Russian films depicted these distinctions, the book demonstrates just how impossible maintaining this binary proved to be. Contributors are Anthony Anemone, Julian Graffy, Peter Kenez, Joan Neuberger, Stephen M. Norris, Oleg Sulkin, Yuri Tsivian, Emma Widdis, and Josephine Woll.

This volume traces the ways in which St Petersburg has become a "museum piece," embodying history, and nostalgia.

The lubok - a broadside or poster - played an important role in Russia's cultural history. Evolving as a medium for communication, the prints were adapted to express political propaganda. This book examines the use of such prints to stir patriotic fervor during times of war, from Napoleon's failed attempt to conquer Russia to Hitler's invasion.
