The Symbol of Motherland in Russian Culture: 

Politics, Semiotics, and History

Special issue of the “Labyrinth” journal

 

The electronic journal “Labyrinth: The Journal of Social and Humanitarian Studies” as well as the Center for Ethnic and Nationalism Studies at the Ivanovo State University invite scholars to contribute to the collection of papers “The Symbol of Motherland in Russian Culture:  Politics, Semiotics, and History”.

The maternal image of Russia is one of the most famous and influential symbols of Russian culture. The symbol of Motherland is involved in practices of political mobilization, in legitimation and delegitimation of power, and in the branding of various political actors. The “Motherland” serves as an important factor of supporting collective identity in Russia, a weapon of the war propaganda, as well as the part of Russia’s “soft power” in the foreign policy discourse.

The articles will be published in the special issue of the electronic journal “Labyrinth” http://journal-labirint.com/. The length of the article should be within 25 000 to a maximum of 40 000 characters.
