Book Talk: Picturing Russian Empire

February 28 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for another 19v seminar!

Picturing Russian Empire, edited by Valerie Kivelson, Sergei Kozlov, and Joan Neuberger (Oxford University Press, 2023), offers readers an extended visual tour of the peoples and places that constituted the Russian Empire in its various formations over more than a millennium of history: peoples who governed, confronted, defied, accommodated, and shaped it with visual images and artifacts of many kinds. The volume includes 56 short essays and more than 150 images and is designed to be broadly accessible by readers of all kinds. Bringing together an international array of scholars from numerous disciplines, Picturing Russian Empire raises important questions about visuality, empire, nationality, and multi-nationality in attempting to understand the history of this enormous, creative, troubled, and tangled region.

Speakers: Joan Neuberger (Univ. of Texas, Austin), Valerie Kivelson (Univ. of Michigan), Olga Maiorova (Univ. of Michigan), Rosalind P. Blakesley (Univ. of Cambridge), and Willard Sunderland (Univ. of Cincinnati)

Discussant:  Wendy Salmond (Chapman Univ.)
