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.

2017 PNLHA Conference: Echoes of the 1917 Russian Revolution; Decades of Radicalism and Red Scares in the Labour Movements of the Pacific Northwest / Vancouver /May 26 – 28, 2017

Vancouver, British Columbia, May 26 – 28, 2017

The Russian Revolution was one of the most significant events of its decadeAs described in Oregonian John Reed’s book, there were events leading to and flowing from those “Ten Days That Shook the World” in October 1917.

In Canada and the US, manyworkers saw an opportunity for class war, believing that socialism could overcome capitalism as the dominant political reality. In the Pacific Northwest, new forms of industrial organizing were bolstered by aspirations of a new world order, and the labour movement briefly swelled with enthusiastic members who were eager to be part of the change.

Communists and socialists developed as key leaders in the labour movement, and in organizing the unemployed and disenfranchised. General strikes in Vancouver, Seattle,and Winnipeg, the OBU, On-to-Ottawa Trek, and jobless sit-down strikes, and new unions of woodworkers, miners, shipyard workers, and fishers were all communist and socialist-led.

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
