Passive Passionarity: the Spectator and the Media in Russian Movies on Hockey / Logos. 2014. № 6 (102). P. 149-178
annotation:  The article deals with the question of images of the sports fan (mostly hockey) in connection with media space in Soviet and post-Soviet cinema. Beginning with the postwar period, in such movies as The Hockey Players, You and me, Legend № 17, Champions, etc., we can discern the evolution of the way spectator-fans are represented on the screen in the sports and media hierarchy. Issues like the demonstration of mediatized national unity, multi-stage evolution of the sportsmedia community, and the special status of hockey in Soviet media are discussed.

Enemy at the Gates. Soviet Goalkeeper: Cinema, Culture, Politics / Logos. 2014. № 5 (101). P. 163-192
annotation:  This article is an attempt to reconstruct the metaphorphosis of the image of the goalkeeper in Soviet and post-Soviet culture. The author develops the following aspects of the theme: 1) historical and political reasons for the emphasis on the goal-keeper in the sports hierarchy, 2) connectivity of the cultural pragmatics of representation in art and sport realities, 3) the striking features of the Soviet sports comedy, 4) militaristic connotations of sports drama, 5) the transformation of goal-keeper topics in the context of cyclic change of culture one and two. The starting point of analysis is the classical image of the “cold goalkeeper” by Anton Kandidov from the movie Goalkeeper and the novel Goalkeeper of the Republic.
