Global Studies hosts third conversation: Centennial of the Russian Revolution
Global Studies extends an invitation to its third conversation about important political events unfolding this fall. The Centennial of the Russian Revolution will be Thursday, Nov. 16, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in Phoenix Room C, University Union. Discussion will be led by Russian studies colleagues Associate Prof. Heidi Sherman (Humanities), Senior Lecturer Kevin Kain (Humanities), and Associate Prof. Katia Levintova (Global Studies, Political Science). Russia continues to dominate U.S. media coverage, so this discussion is timely in understanding contemporary issues in this important international player. Russian Revolution remembrance is a complicated and multilayered phenomenon, that manifests itself in culture, politics, foreign policy, and even education in Russia. These discussions allow us, as a campus, to have important and timely conversations about topical events and processes around the world.
