Second Annual Tartu Conference on Russian and East European Studies « The Russian Revolution and Its Legacies » / Tartu / June 4-6 2017

Centre for EU-Russia Studies at the University of Tartu, the Global Europe Centre at the University of Kent, the Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Uppsala University / “Building Research Excellence in Russian and East European Studies at the Universities of Tartu, Uppsala and Kent » (UPTAKE)

The conference will open on June 4 with a keynote address by Ronald Grigor Suny (University of Michigan) who will speak about Lessons of October:  The Fate of Democracy and Socialism in the Age of Revolution and Counter-Revolution:
The year 1917 was marked by an euphoria of popular power and democracy, a dream of utopia that soon would devolve into civil war and terror, eventuating in the nightmare of Stalinism.  Trotsky wrote his famous essay “Lessons of October” in 1924 in the belief that too little was known about the October Revolution and that other countries needed their own October. We might also consider what October has taught us (and might still teach us today) about the future of democracy and socialism if we begin by seriously appreciating the ambiguous legacy of Soviet “socialism.” The question remains:  how have we ended up 100 years after October in a global crisis of democracy and socialism?

Colloque : Théoriser le politique face à l’expérience soviétique / 3-4 avril 2017 / Nanterre

Université Paris Nanterre / Maison Max Weber, amphithéâtre / 3-4 avril 2017

La pensée politique occidentale du 19e siècle a pour une large part constitué une réaction à la Révolution française et à ses suites. À l’époque, la force surprenante de l’événement avait entraîné la réflexion dans des directions nouvelles, où il s’agissait d’interroger les sources de cette rupture, d’expliquer l’évolution qui l’a suivie, d’envisager les conditions d’une résolution des crises dont elle témoignait. De la même façon, la réflexion sur les événements de 1917, puis la trajectoire de l’Union Soviétique, du léninisme à la violente dérive stalinienne et à l’embourbage brejnévien, a contribué à remodeler la théorie politique, mais aussi plus généralement à enrichir les façons de concevoir le social et l’Histoire. Des concepts originaux (dégénérescence post-révolutionnaire, totalitarisme, bureaucratie, capitalisme d’État…) ont ainsi vu le jour ou été réactivés pour affronter les faits nouveaux que l’URSS imposait au monde. Cette réflexion a également contribué à transformer la pensée marxiste, désormais confrontée à une expérience qui, pour le meilleur et pour le pire, se réclamait de principes qu’elle-même défendait.

Russia 1917 and the Dissolution of the Old Order in Europe. Biographical Itineraries, Individual Experiences, Autobiographical Reflections / Switzerland / 13-15 septembre 2017

International conference organized by the Universities of Basel (Prof. Dr. Frithjof Benjamin Schenk) and Geneva (Prof. Dr. Korine Amacher)

The Russian revolution of 1917, an event that « shook the world » and contributed significantly to the dissolution of the old order in Europe, may be re-examined through individual experiences. In our conference, we will discuss how the revolutionary events of 1917 shaped biographies both in Russia and in Western Europe. We will analyze the impact of individuals on the course of the revolution, in Russia and abroad, study personal experiences of actors, victims and bystanders and explore memories of the revolution in autobiographies and other ego-documents. Last but not least, we will discuss historiographical narratives that either highlighted or downplayed the role of the individual in historical events.

Collapsed Empires: the consequences of 1917 in the Mediterranean and the World / Madrid / 15-17 november 2017

The aim is to pay special attention to South shore of the Mediterranean Basin, although global and transnational analyses are also welcome. A special interest at the plenary sessions will be given to the consequences of 1917 at the Mediterranean, with participation of experts from Morocco, the Turkey and Egypt. We explicitly encourage scholars from North African countries and Middle East countries to participate.

We want to examine these developments within the perspective of other processes of independences like those after the Second World War as well as in relation to the consolidation of the post-colonial states (for example Morocco and Egypt). We are also interested in the exact inverse process: the independence and the recovery of full sovereignty after the collapsed of the Soviet Union 1989-1991.

Western Europe and the Russian Revolution: Import and Export of Ideologies, Politics, Communities / London / 5-26 February 2017

 London School of Economics and Political Science, 

Transnational interchanges between Western Europe and Russia surrounded the October Revolution of 1917. These exchanges of ideologies and emigres led to mutual constructions of doctrines, politicised collectives, and eventually, a new experimental State. During and post the establishment of the USSR, new cross-cultural knowledge, pro-Soviet communities and indoctrination techniques evolved. This conference will seek to explore the transnational flows that impacted the revolution and those that were brought into being by virtue of its occurrence.

III International Congress Karl Marx “On the centenary of the October Revolution of 1917”

The October Revolution of 1917 was one of the most significant events of the modern era. Its historical meaning can be understood, on the one hand, within the narrative of previous revolutions –starting with the 1789 French Revolution –and of the rise of the labour movement in the nineteenth century. On the other hand, 1917 also paved the way to several other twentieth century events and phenomena, such as the Chinese Revolution or the post-colonial turn. On its hundredth anniversary, the Institute for Contemporary History organizes an international conference dedicated to the study and discussion of the October Revolution and its consequences
