The Asian Arc of the Russian Revolution: Setting the East Ablaze?

16 November 2017 (Thu),

“Yale-NUS College is hosting a two-day conference to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution — The Asian Arc of the Russian Revolution: Setting the East Ablaze? It explores the trajectory of the revolution across the Asian continent, from the Caucasus to the Pacific. The conference examines how the revolutionary wave mingled with cross-currents of nationalism, religion, ethnicity and culture, as Asian peoples reinterpreted and refashioned the events in Russia. It features early-career and leading scholars from throughout Asia, France, Russia, Australia and the United States. All students and faculty are warmly invited. The conference is organized by Prof Naoko Shimazu with Dr Rachel Lin and Khasan Redjaboev from LKYSPP, jointly with Prof Sabine Dullin’s team at Sciences Po in Paris, under the generous funding from the USPC-NUS Grant.
