“100 Year Anniversary of the 1917 Revolution”- Roundtable Discussion on “What was 1917?”

November 8 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am

Please join us on November 8th, 2017 for “What was 1917?”, a roundtable discussion with Anne Lounsbery (New York University) and Anne O’Donnell (New York University). This discussion will be chaired by Joshua A. Tucker, Director of the Jordan Center and Professor of Politics at New York University. This is the third event in the lecture series entitled “100 Year Anniversary of the 1917 Revolution”, hosted by the NYU Jordan Center and co-sponsored by the NYU Department of History.

It was quite a year: an autocracy collapsed, power spilled onto the streets, and the world’s first successful socialist revolution unfolded in Petrograd. It was the end of an era and the start of another. Not surprisingly the controversy continues, with many of us finding meaning and a model, others a dire warning, and still others lessons on how to do it differently. Five events at the NYU Jordan Center will adopt different approaches to that same year and consider multiple possible meanings — from the angst of intellectuals to the nature of non-capitalist law and value to longue duree of world history. The lecture series culminates in a keynote by the renowned Sheila Fitzpatrick and roundtable with scholars representing diverse disciplinary perspectives: literature, culture, history and politics.

Save the date and stay tuned for more information!
