The Allan K. Wildman Group for the Study of the Russian Politics, Society and Culture in the Revolutionary Era invites scholars to participate in a project with the goal of addressing new research and new conceptualizations of 1917. It is our intention to organize panels and workshops on 1917 over the course of the next few years in preparation for the publication of a collection of essays marking the centennial of the 1917 Revolution.
The first discussion will take place at the ASEEES National Conference in New Orleans, LA. The Roundtable is scheduled for Friday, 16 November from 1:45-3:30 pm in Mardi Gras Ballroom E.
Based upon funding it is hoped that a series of international workshops will be held in future years. Scholars working on any aspects of the Revolutions of 1917, including their legacy and impact on Russia and the World consistent with the goals of the group are invited to participate. The group's aim is to promote research about and interpretation of late imperial and early Soviet politics, society, and culture, with a particular focus on workers, peasants, soldiers, and the intelligentsia, but also other groups and individuals whose lives and struggles help us better understand the revolutionary experience and its legacy.
