Between the Battlefield and the Marketplace: International Literature Magazine in Britain

The Russian Journal of Communication. 2016. Vol. 8. No. 3. P. 217-229.

The article focuses on the history of the English version of Internatsionalnaya LiteraturaInternational Literature, addressing different aspects of the institutional history of the magazine over the 1930s. The magazine is discussed as a mouthpiece of IURW (International Union of Revolutionary Writers), so the published and (newly revealed) archival materials are used to show the connection and, more importantly the difference between the two institutions, presented by more or less the same set of people. Another perspective is introduced by the editorial correspondence with the readers from Britain. The institutes under consideration are discussed as both cultural and political entities and analyzed from these two perspectives.
