Dialogue between elite and mass cultures in mass cinematography and in the individual gender dimension of the viewer

Sidorova G.P.


The dialogue between elite and mass cultures is studied by the methods of historical typology and hermeneutics in two aspects: 1. The embodiment of the culture of the elite – Soviet science in the artistic images of the domestic mass cinema of the 1960–1980 s. 2. Perception of elite scientific culture through mass cinema by the mass audience (in the individual dimension) and its “response” to elite culture. The influence of mass culture on elite culture was manifested in the motivation of scientific activity, the nature of research, and their topics.
