The Jordan Center’s Colloquium Series serves to introduce the most recent work of scholars within the Slavic field. Participants come from universities across the country and abroad, and work in disciplines ranging from history, political science and anthropology to literature and film. The colloquium discussion is based on a working paper which will be circulated prior to the event. On January 26th, please join us for the first installment of our Spring 2018 Colloquium Series with David McDonald from University of Wisconsin-Madison on “Dreaming of Dukhobor’e: 1917 and Canada’s Dukhobors”.
David McDonald holds the Alice D. Mortenson/Petrovich Distinguished Chair in Russian History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he has taught since 1988. Aside from service in numerous administrative capacities, McDonald has devoted his research and publications to the foreign policy, institutional and intellectual history of the late Russian Empire, with a more recent interest in the history of sports. He currently serves as a general editor for the international research consortium Russia’s Great War and Revolution, 1914-1922, a multi-volume series from Slavica Publishers in Bloomington, IN. This paper is a draft chapter for the volume on the “Wider Arc” of 1917 around the world in the interwar period.
