Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH)

Revolution is in the air! Undergrads, join us for a casual discussion over lunch with history professor Mark Steinberg. Professor Steinberg will discuss his book The Russian Revolution, 1905–1921, how the Russian Revolution still affects us 100 years later and how he came to this area of study.

 

This IPRH Inside Scoop session offers an opportunity for all interested undergrads, no matter their majors, to engage with creative minds in the humanities. Lunch will be served.

 

Mark D. Steinberg teaches at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. He is the author of many books on the Russian revolutionary era, including The Fall of the Romanovs: Political Dreams and Personal Struggles in a Time of Revolution (Yale 1995), Voices of Revolution, 1917 (Yale 2001), Proletarian Imagination: Self, Modernity, and the Sacred in Russia, 1910-1925 (Cornell 2002), Petersburg Fin-de-Siecle (Yale, 2011), and The Russian Revolution, 1905-1921 (Oxford 2017).
