Pour le centenaire de la révolution russe, Mediapart vous propose quatorze portraits de destins exceptionnels, forgés dans la tourmente d’octobre 1917.
Edited by Eugene Gogol & Franklin Dmitryev, Raya Dunayevskaya Memorial Fund
Russia: From Proletarian Revolution to State-Capitalist Counter-Revolution is a selection of writings by the Marxist-Humanist philosopher Raya Dunayevskaya, which begins with an examination of Lenin’s Hegel Notebooks, his philosophic preparation for proletarian revolution, followed by a section on “What Happens After” the revolution–the first years post 1917. Analyses of Trotsky, Stalin, Bukharin, and Luxemburg are presented.
A key section is “Russia’s Transformation into Opposite: The Theory of State-Capitalism.” Opposition to Russian state-capitalism such as the 1953 East Germany Revolt and the 1956 Hungarian Revolution are described. Mao’s China as another form of state-capitalism, as well as the Sino-Soviet conflict, is discussed. The study ends with a “battle of ideas” with other analyses of the Revolution and its aftermath.
Octobre 17 fut la référence politique et culturelle centrale de l’époque soviétique. Cent ans après, la société russe reste toujours profondément divisée face à son passé. Le centenaire de la révolution sera-t-il ce grand moment de réconciliation nationale souhaité par le pouvoir russe ?

Il y a cent ans, en février 1917, alors que la Russie est embourbée dans la Grande Guerre, des manifestations dégénèrent à Petrograd. En quelques jours, le régime impérial du tsar Nicolas II s’écroule.
En octobre, les bolcheviks conduits par Lénine prennent le palais d’Hiver. Que s’est-il passé entre-temps ? Les historiens redécouvrent l’extraordinaire effervescence démocratique des premiers mois de la révolution. Une période où tout semblait possible et où les bolcheviks étaient loin d’être certains de l’emporter.

Call for Papers for a special issue of Scando-Slavica. Deadline : 1 March 2017
2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, or the “Great October Revolution” as it was called in the Soviet Union. Back then, there was no doubt that the Revolution was truly “great.” But in the 25 years that have passed since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the meaning of the Revolution has become highly contested.
This special issue invites scholars to analyse how the 1917 Russian Revolution is understood and discussed in today’s Russia. We welcome creative and theoretically reflective analyses of an engaging empirical material. We are interested in both how the anniversary itself is celebrated (or not), and in the ways in which talking about the Revolution have developed since 2000.

part of the past, an anachronistic legacy. The rise of such phenomena has contributed to distortions and even falsifications not only of the Russian Revolution itself, but of its global influence.
Special Fall 2017 Issue: The 100-year anniversary of the Russian revolutions.
Social protest movements across the political spectrum and the globe indicate the continuing importance of the 1917 Russian revolutions. For a special Fall 2017 issue of Slavic Review we seek short essays not previously published that draw on original scholarly research. The essays should provide a significant new interpretative and analytic framework for the concept of revolution generally and particularly on the global impact of the 1917 events in the short and long term, in Russia and Eastern Europe and beyond, and their extended repercussions and legacy to the present day across national boundaries and realms of human endeavor. All disciplines are welcome. Manuscripts (in English) should highlight the conceptual impact and analytic and interpretative themes of the work.
Philosophy & October Revolution 1917-2017 | Lo Sguardo – Journal of Philosophy
On the occasion of its Hundredth anniversary, the XXV issue of Lo Sguardo (scheduled in October 2017) will be dedicated to the Russian revolution, interpreted as a crucial event of the contemporary age, which marked starkly the historical events. It was the first open challenge to the capitalism, dealing with a political change of the sovereignty, of the social structures and of the class struggles. A century later, one should rethink the theoretical constructs and the global geopolitical impact of Russian revolution, coping with its mythicization and its forgotten heritage as well.
