European University at St. Petersburg, Deadline : August 15th 2017
What is the meaning of the event of the 1917 revolutions for us today? What did 1917 open and what did it block? What are its legacies and what is the relation of 1917 to the perspective from which its legacies are assessed? We would like to speak particularly of the political, social, and intellectual legacy of 1917 which has not been sufficiently pronounced in comparison to the French revolution of 1789.

Military History Institute Prague / Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, Deadline 10 July 2017
The drawn-out conflict, which without making any difference among the belligerent parties gradually dominated all the participating states and their inhabitants, succeeded in the meantime in disrupting and re-structuring of the social structures and institutions. In 1917, the degree of war exhaustion not only reached the limits of bearability, but in many cases went well beyond them. In desperate effort to defeat the war, people in hinterland as well as soldiers in the front line stepped en masse outside of the conventions for the first time, into the unpredictable and unknown realm of the revolution. That is what happened in Russia, where on one hand the double revolt took the country out of the world war, but at the cost of collaps and the following agony of a civil war. Not everywhere did the revolt against the war question the war itself and its goals; instead, it turned against the ways of its conduct, like in France, where the military mutinies almost destroyed the military readiness of her armies.

Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences Leof. Syggrou 136, Deadline : June 18, 2017
The October Revolution is considered to be an important event for both the Russian and world twentieth-century history. The completion of one hundred years from the events of 1917 serve as an occasion for reflection and critical reading of the past, while major questions arise about the present: Why does the Russian Revolution still concerns us? How can this event be approached today, three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall?

The outbreak of a socialist revolution in one of the least industrially developed European regions might be found by the contemporaries as surprising as the destabilizing potential of new revolutionary thoughts in the following period of the civil war. Its consequences were fully manifested, for instance, in young successor states of the Austrian Empire: Poland, Czechoslovakia, or Hungary. Apart from the immediate influence of revolutionary events, we would like to focus on transferring and transforming functions of ideas, concepts, and practices of the revolution both within Russian, or rather Soviet Empire, and in the Central-Eastern European region.

Deadline : March 20th 2017
The revolutionary year of 1917 and the events of the following years until 1923 may be interpreted as a “long” 1917. The fall of the Czarist Empire, triggered by the war-weariness that exacerbated discontent on the war- and homefront, and then the Bolshevik revolution had consequences for all the belligerent parties of World War I. The Central Empires saw the chance to close the eastern Front while the Entente feared that this could switch the balance of power against them.

53rd ITH Conference
Worlds of Labour Turned Upside Down – Revolutions and Labour Relations in Global Historical Perspective
Linz/Upper Austria, 21–23 September 2017
Conference languages: German / English
After a long quarantine, “revolution” is back as a topic of historiographical debate. The upcoming anniversary of 1917 – arguably one of, if not the most momentous event of the 20th century – has further fuelled this renewed interest. The reasons for the trend might be sought, on the one hand, in broader contemporary social experiences of crisis – including economic crises, recent upheavals in the Arab world, or movements and governments in Latin America aiming at transformation or even explicitly revolution. On the other hand, internal shifts within the domains of historical studies have made revolutions an attractive object of study again: Under the influence of dynamic debates around “global history” and “transnational perspectives” revolutions have emerged as an obvious object of study for those interested in the circulation of ideas, persons, commodities, practices, etc., as well as the connection between locations.
Submission of proposals: by 29 January 2017

European University Institute. Deadline: March 31, 2017.
The fall of the Russian Tsar and the rise to power of the Bolsheviks sent shock waves across Europe and beyond, initiating a period of momentous revolutionary transformations. Indeed, the protagonists of 1917 did not envisage their endeavour as an exclusively Russian phenomenon, but as the first act of the world revolution. As Lenin reflected in 1921, ‘we have made the start. When, at what date and time, and the proletarians of which nation will complete this process is not important. The important thing is that the ice has been broken’.
