Please join us on Monday, April 8th for a Workshop entitled “Russia’s Legal Tradition: Transformation, Continuities, Ruptures“, organized by Jane Burbank, New York University and Tatiana Borisova, Higher School of Economics National Research University, St. Petersburg. This event is sponsored by the Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia.
This one-day workshop will consider challenges to and new perspectives on the “Russian legal tradition.” (See the concept proposed by Tatiana Borisova and Jane Burbank in their article, “Russia’s Legal Trajectories,”Kritika: Explorations in Russian and Eurasian History 19, 3 [Summer 2018]: 469–508.) Pre-circulated papers will focus on the question of breakpoints vs. continuities in Russian law from roughly 1860 to the present, with an emphasis on the Soviet period. The discussion at the workshop seek to identify and characterize continuities, shifts, transformations, and ruptures in Russian law over the course of the 20th century.
