CENTENARY OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION (1917-2017) / Barcelona / 25-27 octobre 2017

Faculty of Geography and History of the University of Barcelona. Deadline : 30 octobre 2016

The Russian Revolution of 1917 is one of the events that more deeply marked the so-called short Twentieth Century, which began in 1914 with World War I and ended in 1991 with the demise of the Soviet Union, two milestones closely linked with the Revolution itself.

We are facing a fact that pierced Russian borders, shaking the political and social life of much of the world; that served both as a reference and as a specter in mobilizing all the energies and resources in many countries; and that led to the formation of a political, economic and military power that was a protagonist of the great historical events of the past century.

For that very reason, on the occasion of the commemoration of the centenary of the Russian Revolution (1917-2017), from the Centre d’Estudis Històrics Internacionals of the Universitat de Barcelona, and through the consolidated research group GRANMA (Grup de Recerca i Anàlisi del Món Actual), we launch an international Congress to collect the contributions, in the field of historical research, about the Revolution and its international impact.

ƒ World War I and Revolution   –   Revolution and Work  –  ƒ Woman and Revolution ƒ –  The fear of Revolution – ƒVisions of the Revolution ƒ The implosion of Soviet Union
