Project B 11:Supplications as a form and medium of political communication in the USSR
This project analyzes processes of political communication in the USSR after World War II. It explores supplications and petitions, which were submitted to different local and central addresses as well as to the mass media. The mutual reaction of television, press and supplications is of special interest. From the point of view of the Soviet Regime the issue of consumption, which remained the central topic of most supplications, mainly legitimized the system after Stalin's death in 1953. In the context of restricted participation in politics and the mass media, the regime and society negotiated their cohabitation particularly through supplications. It should be clarified who structured this field through which modi of communication, strategies, topics and claims of participation.
