Социальные статусы работников агитпропа и нормы идеологической работы в годы Великой Отечественной войны
The article is devoted to the norms and practices of ideological work during the Great Patriotic war. Propaganda and agitation are considered in the context of the social status of the people who carried out this work. The article uses sociological optics. This makes it possible to speak of soviet ideology not only as a system of ideas, but also as socially conditioned knowledge. The article reveals the ways and techniques of defending their social positions through the use of official discourse. The analysis of reflection of sources allows to reveal semantic gaps in interpretation of political knowledge, to reveal tactics and strategies of use of ideology in protection and upholding of the social positions. During the war, agitprop did not become a monopoly in the production and evaluation of political texts. There were regular conflicts between agitprop, Soviet censorship, and regional leaders. These conflicts were resolved through the mediation of the Secretariat of the Central Committee. The use of political language allowed representatives of the higher nomenclature to defend their positions. The situation was different in the Soviet province. In the Soviet rear during the war there is a marginalization of social statuses of agitators and propagandists. Ideological workers were forced to solve economic problems. This created a special genre of report in which the success of the economy was explained by agitation and propaganda. The new practices allowed us to strengthen ideological control over the workers on the part of heads of regions. Regional leaders could evaluate the work of propagandists using economic indicators. However, the political language maintained its dominant position. This allowed after the war to weaken the resulting autonomy of regional leaders.
