The Fall Symposium will focus on 1917 in its immediate context and also, reflect on the broadest implications of 1917 and a century of protest and revolution. The morning session will offer historical perspectives on the revolution in Russia, and will include scholars who will address the immediate and global reverberations of the revolution during the first decades after 1917. The afternoon will examine the state of radical political action, labor, and protest 100 years later and will focus on questions of work, precarity, and inequality.
