“Publishing and Cultural Politics: Russia and Argentina in the 1920s” explores how the 
1920s institutionalization of the literary public 
sphere, and rapprochement between the state and 
literary groups mediated by influential cultural 
figures, helped to usher in 
anti-democratic regimes of the 1930s in Russia 
and Argentina. The 1920s was a decade of 
remarkable artistic and literary achievements in 
both countries, marked by intense debates over 
the future of the national culture and the essence of national identity. The analysis of the dominant trends in 
publishing in these two apparently very 
different countries sheds light on the striking similarities between 
cultural processes in Russia and Argentina.
