Project Summary

The project is devoted to the American perception of Russia through political cartoons in the period, when there was a dramatic shift in the dominant American images of the Russian Empire. Russia was turning into one of the significant Others that framed the American self-narrative, and at the same time into a country eager to follow the American model of development.
