PUBLIC LECTURE: STALIN AS THE ADDRESSEE OF SOVIET LITERATURE

Printer-friendly version
McKeldin Library Special Events Room (rm 6137)
Friday, November 01, 2013 - 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Twenty years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the theme of the Soviet past has not only continued to be the subject of lively debate in both Russia and the West, but has taken on new relevance. The authoritarian rule of Vladimir Putin, the return of a resource-based economy, the resurgence of repressive politics in relation to any group or individual deemed disloyal, the failure to reform the inhumane penal system—together produce a striking sense of déjà vu and stimulate critical reflection about the Soviet legacy.

Reception to follow.
