I am definitely seeing a trend of the terms “youth” and “rebellion.” This was an interesting post, I had never heard of this show, but with the way it’s explained I’m a little surprised how long it lasted. I liked the picture at the beginning marking out the “older generation” watching the show. Interesting post!
In addition to what everyone noted, I want to add that I really appreciate how this post suggests that cultural expression has political implications – and the irony that the Stilyagi professed to NOT be political at the same time they ruffled the status quo of their privileged parents and system they represented is wonderful.
Cubans definitely attended Friendship U! (Great question): https://books.google.com/books?id=TcPEBAAAQBAJ&lpg=PA137&ots=vok-YuWSFC&dq=patrice%20lumumba%20university%20cuba&pg=PA137#v=onepage&q=patrice%20lumumba%20university%20cuba&f=false
I liked how this post really showed how the youth of the Soviet Union broke out of the cultural norms of the time.
i liked that you made the connection between their English language education and their infatuation with the west.
