Cinepaternity : fathers and sons in Soviet and post-Soviet film by Yana Hashamova( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This wide-ranging collection investigates the father/son dynamic in post-Stalinist Soviet cinema and its Russian successor. Contributors analyze complex patterns of identification, disavowal, and displacement in films by such diverse directors as Khutsiev, Motyl', Tarkovsky, Balabanov, Sokurov, Todorovskii, Mashkov, and Bekmambetov. Several chapters focus on the difficulties of fulfilling the paternal function, while others show how vertical and horizontal male bonds are repeatedly strained by the pressure of redefining an embattled masculinity in a shifting political landscape
Pride and panic : Russian imagination of the West in post-Soviet film by Yana Hashamova( )

18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through the looking-glass of Russian national cinema, Pride and Panic explores Russia's anxious adjustment towards the expansion of Western culture. Russian film is shown, in both its creation and perception, to expose the intriguing dynamics of societal psychological conditions." "Using specific film examples, the book delves into the subterranean recesses of Russian national consciousness, exposing an internal ambivalence and complex cultural reaction towards the rise of the West. These fears, fantasies and tremulous anxieties are examined through the representation of the West in films by both established and lesser-known Russian directors. Using a highly original and unorthodox approach, the author parallels the shifting dynamics of national identity in Russia, caused by globalization, to stages of development in an individual human psyche and traces the slippery structure of fantasy as support of reality and ideology." "The book cohesively unveils the psychological turmoil experienced by Russia towards a change in global relations. A text of particular interest to scholars, students and readers involved with contemporary film, and in particular, Russian cinema and culture."--Jacket
Embracing arms : cultural representation of Slavic and Balkan women in war by Yana Hashamova( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discursive practices during war polarize and politicize gender: they normally require men to fulfill a single, overriding task destroy the enemy but impose a series of often contradictory expectations on women. The essays in the book establish links between political ideology, history, psychology, cultural studies, cinema, literature, and gender studies and addresses questions such as what is the role of women in war or military conflicts beyond the well-studied victimization? Can the often contradictory expectations of women and their traditional roles be (re)thought and (re)constructed? How do cultural representations of women during war times reveal conflicting desires and poke holes in the ideological apparatus of the state and society?
Beyond mosque, church, and state : alternative narratives of the nation in the Balkans by Theodora Dragostinova( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ethnic diversity and national tensions in the Balkans have long attracted the attention of the international community of scholars and policy-makers who have tried to understand how states, societies and people in the area negotiate complex religious and ethno-national identities. By exploring the development of these issues in Bulgaria and Bosnia while also drawing parallels with Macedonia, this volume uses the three most diversely populated areas in the Balkans to engage complex questions. What institutions of state building are capable of managing diverse ethno-religious traditions and conflicting national identities? How do people on the ground respond to state-sponsored political projects at the local community level? In what ways do studies of cultural representations of ethno-national and religious conflicts call attention to inequality and human rights violations? How have studies of human rights problems in the Balkans contributed to changes in international law? More generally, what is the role of the humanities and social sciences in developing a discourse on the subject of conflict resolution and human rights? The volume engages the question of ethno-national conflicts and identities from three perspectives: historical interpretations of national conflict and ethno-religious tensions in the context of empire- and state-building; cultural debates as reflected in the use of language and dance, film, and media production and circulation as tools for nation-and community-building; and current political controversies over national resurgence and human rights both in the post-Yugoslav War context and in connection to European Union integration"--Provided by publisher
Screening trafficking : prudent and perilous by Yana Hashamova( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book examines film and media representations of the social, political, and economic issue of human trafficking, one of the most dramatic challenges of today's globalized world. Hashamova productively combines fieldwork in NGOs in southeastern Europe, social science data, and the analysis of Western and East European anti-trafficking films and media, and their reception in the United States and the Balkans. Her book identifies a disconnect between the global flow of trafficking images and their local comprehension. The critical analysis of documentaries, feature films, video clips, and NGOs' media materials and the responses they elicit from spectators reveals the flaws of these products and the ideological structures present both in them and in their audiences."--Dust jacket

Presentation of Russia and the West in Mikhalkov's Barber of Siberia and Sokurov's Russian Ark by Olha Vitaliivna Rudich( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: For centuries Russia and the West were engaged in relations that varied from positive to negative depending on economic, social, and political conditions. The process of Westernization strongly affects Russia at the present time, and the interaction of the two cultures leads to an altering of Russian cultural values. The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate that the matter of preserving Russian national identity became urgent at the beginning of the 21st Century. This thesis analyzes two contemporary films and examines how Russia and the West are presented. Both films glorify the time of Imperial Russia and the idea of Russia's unique culture. While one director depicts the mingling of Russia and the West in a positive way, another director views Russians as superior to other nationalities. Both films open a discussion about the influence of the West on Russia's national identity by emphasizing the importance of preserving Russian culture and its values
Projecting social concerns: Russian auteur cinema in the Putin era by Justin Wilmes( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In recent years the Putin administration has increasingly consolidated its control over media and suppressed political opposition and dissenting views. Since 2012, ideological controls are ever expanding their reach also in the realm of cinema, circumscribing the social content of films and reflecting a marked shift toward authoritarianism during Putin's third term as President. On the other hand, high art has often had a paradoxical role in Russia, taking on a larger significance and even becoming increasingly outspoken as authoritarian controls stifle freedom of expression. In the tsarist and Soviet periods, Russia's great writers were the moral compasses for society; they frequently collided with government censors and their works were sites of conflict for difficult social issues. In the digital age, this torch has largely been taken up by Russian auteur cinema, which has become one of the only remaining sites of civic discourse on sensitive social and political issues. These cinematic discourses are circumscribed by government censorship and funding, and an interesting "cat and mouse" game is taking place. New forms of Aesopian language have appeared in the Putin era. The postmillennial generation of auteur directors has been labeled, for example, the "New Quiets" (Novye tikhie) for their films in the early 2000s, which addressed social issues only obliquely through metaphor and allegory. However, several of these directors have taken a "political turn" since 2013, making films that more explicitly address political corruption and authoritarian practices. Through analysis of both aesthetics and content, this dissertation examines the postmillennial generation of auteur filmmakers to better understand the social concerns that preoccupy them, their aesthetic strategies, and what resonance this vanguard of social and political critique has in society. Unlike the majority of studies that focus on a particular aspect of post-Soviet cinema, the present analysis will examine a wider range of social topics - national identity, xenophobia, postcoloniality, political discourse - attempting to illuminate connections among them
The burden of history and the search for truth: Polish-Russian television news narratives in the wake of smolensk by Hannah Stewart( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This research analyzes television media in both Poland and Russia and their depiction of the Smolensk tragedy. The crash occurred on April 10, 2010, in Smolensk, Russia, as a Polish delegation traveled to a Katyn memorial service to remember the murder of Polish military officers by the Soviet Union in the Second World War. All 96 on board died, including Polish president Lech Kaczynski and many heads of the military, government and clergy. This research argues that Smolensk television narratives, in their characterization of the crash, the investigation and memorialization, show how elites (who produce and influence the media) create sentiments that contribute to perceptions of nationhood. Each country argues for their own “truth” of Smolensk and their political relations through television news. Television news narratives in both countries show the opposing country as an absolute, negative other, therefore enforcing their own righteousness in their political relations and encouraging nationalist ideas. The nationalism that stems from these television news narratives then promotes belonging to the right and truthful nation that produces these television reports. Given the high viewership of television news in both countries, the potential stakes for persuasion are high
Of embryos and criminals : (mis)representations of human trafficking in polish media by Karolina Chimchenko( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The development of the human trafficking phenomenon in Poland has repercussions that span throughout the European Union (EU). Because of Poland’s geographic location as the second largest country of the EU’s eastern border, the country plays a critical role in curbing human trafficking throughout the region. As migration and labor policies supported by the media and political actors affect trends in trafficking, the ways in which the media represents trafficking is imperative to society’s understanding of and reaction to trafficking. By performing a research and content analysis on articles available through three news publications’ online websites, I argue that the manner in which Polish media sources report on human trafficking not only affects the public’s understanding but also how society and the government react to it. This study addresses how Gazeta Wyborcza, Rzeczpospolita, and Gazeta Polska Codziennie formulate human trafficking discourse by the use of agenda setting, framing, bandwagoning, and omission techniques. The media uses these techniques to present trafficking in a way that conforms to fit the ideological and political agendas of agencies and actors, constructing a particular (mis)representation the phenomenon. The “criminalization” frame is used by publications in order to convey trafficked persons are helpless and vulnerable, while the “immigration” poses the trafficking issue as merely a matter of border control. This analysis also demonstrates how the issue of human trafficking has become entrenched within a political battleground for influence and has become associated with, or “bandwagoned to”, other contested issues in Poland, in particular, in-vitro fertilization and immigration, in order to support right-leaning parties’ conceptions of a true Polish-Catholic identity. The omission of information mitigates the complex socio-economic conditions such as violent conflict and poverty that push many trafficked persons to seek a chance for safety and stability abroad
