“Why is There a Bull on the Magazine Cover?” The Readers of the Soviet Magazine "30 Days" (Blog Post)
Title: “Why is There a Bull on the Magazine Cover?” The Readers of the Soviet Magazine "30 Days"
Author: Cassio de Oliveira
Abstract: Better known nowadays for having been the venue for the publication in installments of Il’ia Il’f and Evgenii Petrov’s famous novels The Twelve Chairs and The Golden Calf (published in 1928 and 1931 respectively), "30 Days" also holds a unique place in the Soviet publishing environment between the NEP Era and the First Five-Year Plan. In this post, de Oliveira sheds light on the distinctive features of "30 Days" by focusing on archival evidence about the makeup of its readership.

O “Amor Brasileiro” de Vsiévolod Ivanov [Vsevolod Ivanov's "Brazilian Love"] (Article)
Title: O “Amor Brasileiro” de Vsiévolod Ivanov [Vsevolod Ivanov's "Brazilian Love"]
Author: Cassio de Oliveira
Abstract: In 1926, Vsevolod Ivanov, a pioneering Soviet writer canonized on the pages of the legendary journal "Krasnaia Nov," published a short story entitled “A Brazilian Love” in the illustrated magazine "30 Dnei." There is no evidence that Ivanov ever visited Brazil, suggesting that the representation of the country in the short story is founded on second-hand information; on the other hand, not only does Ivanov produce a stereotype of a distant and exotic culture in “A Brazilian Love,” but he also transposes onto that world a lingering hesitation regarding the Soviet reality, generating a kind of cultural translation of the uncertainties of the Bolshevik project into a mythical Amazon Forest literally inhabited by Russian émigrés.
