Practices of Soviet Foreign Propaganda: Algeria 1962-1970
2017
In my thesis I am studying the practices of Soviet foreign propaganda on the case of Algerian People’s Democratic Republic in 1962-1970. I am using methodology of synthesis and historicism, and also R. Koselleck’s conceptual history and P. Bourdieu’s practical structures.

I argue that propaganda actors in Algeria were understanding propaganda as two things at the same time: promotion of Soviet Union and its achievements, and as dissemination of any knowledge. Propaganda practices in Algeria had two forms: passive and active. Active propaganda was manifested in thought through and organized propaganda activities, and passive one was manifested through being a product of Soviet system and Soviet culture. Practical structure of propaganda was centered around Soviet Embassy in Algeria, and did not imply full propaganda data processing, using Embassy as a crossroad of information.
