Представления о прошлом студентов топовых московских вузов
The research is focused on Russian students' attitudes to the past: the events in which they take pride and the events they deem shameful. The participants of the poll were 175 students from the leading Moscow universities. The results of the research show that students' attention is focused on two events of the XX century: the Great Patriotic War and the Stalinist repressions. The authors describe two ideological / value paradigms in youth' mind: "Soviet" and "anti-Soviet". These paradigms not only determine attitudes towards the key events of the past but also attitudes towards the present of the country.
