The Russian Revolution

Dr. Leah Goldman (Lewis & Clark College) explores the social, political and economic factors that provided fertile ground for violent change, then details the Revolution’s progress from labor strike to democratic insurgency to Bolshevik coup.  Goldman will analyze the role of workers, women and other underrepresented groups in driving the Revolution forward. Further, she will explore the consequences of seven years of upheaval—comprising WWI, the Revolution itself and the ensuing Civil War—for Russian society, as well as the impact of avant-garde social and cultural experiments in shaping post-Revolutionary ways of life.
