Conference on the Russian Bolshevik Revolution, November 2017
Beyond doubt, the Russian Bolshevik Revolution in October 1917 was one of the most defining events in the history of the 20th century. It has coined the past century and the consequences – including its myths – have remained noticeable until today. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the Centre for Border Region Studies will be hosting an international conference in November 2017. It will deal primarily with the different histories of reception and resonances of this history-making year. The focus will lie on different national perceptions, interpretations and historiographic views of the “Red October” as well as its far-reaching consequences – especially in a European perspective. The conference is supported by the German Federal Foundation for the Reappraisal of the SED Dictatorship (Bundesstiftung zur Aufarbeitung der SED-Diktatur), whose emphasis for 2017 lies on“Communism: Utopia and Reality”. For more information about the conference, please contact Dr Katarzyna Stoklosa
