The Figure of the Mass Reader in Early Soviet Literature: Artificial Interpretive Communities and Critical Practice.
Carleton, Greg
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v12 n1 p1-22 Mar 1995
Suggests that conflicts in early Soviet literature over reader's identity and function presages many issues in critical understanding of audiences, especially as reflected in the antithetical Frankfurt and Birmingham School positions. Argues that how the mass reader was invoked, defined, and appropriated for institutional needs in the Soviet context puts into perspective the ramifications of both schools' theoretical assumptions.
