THE CONCEPT OF POLITENESS IN SOVIET CULTURE OF THE 1930S (CASE STUDY OF PIONERSKAYA PRAVDA NEWSPAPER)
Likhacheva, L.; Kapkan, M.
The paper is devoted to the analysis of constructing a new concept politeness in the Soviet culture in the 1930s. The methodology of the paper is based on V. Volkovs and S. Fitzpatricks ideas about mastering culture by the Soviet people. Principles of new Soviet politeness are revealed, and main etiquette situations typical for childrens everyday life are characterized (communications with classmates, teachers, parents, behaviour in public transportation, sports events) on the materials of the popular newspaper for children Pionerskaya pravda. Correlation between the concept of politeness and the idea of civility becoming popular in that period is traced. The paper concludes that in the 1930s politeness was identified through the antithesis of rudeness treated as a set of social deviations. For this reason it is natural that discussion about politeness included questions concerned solutions of urgent social problems and avoided such etiquette cases as visiting theatres, museums, etc. Polite behaviour as cultural capital was stated due to its description as an attribute of the Soviet citizen. However excessive politeness was evaluated negatively and could mark a class enemy, a spy, etc.
