Время, пространство, память в мемуарах русских журналистов конца XIX – начала ХХ вв. А.В. Амфитеатрова и В.М. Дорошевича

Natalia Rodigina, Tatiana Kuzovkina


This article explores the representations of time and space in the autobiographical prose and memoirs by Alexander Amfiteatrov (1862-1938) and Vlas Doroshevich (1865-1922), famous journalists of early twentieth century Russia, members of the intelligentsia and of the generation of the 1880s. The collective memory and individual memory closely intertwined in their memoirs, reflecting the process of the professional and social self-identification of the Russian intelligentsia. We examine the ‘world of journalism’ and the representations of Moscow and Russia in the memoirs of Alexander Amfiteatrov and Vlas Doroshevich, considering their works as a component of the commemoration practice and political culture of the Russian society.
