Description


The talk will follow the lives of the original Bolsheviks from the time they joined the apocalyptic sect known as “the party of a new type” to the time most of them were arrested for terrorism and treason. It will focus on the connection betwen private lives and millenarian expectations and attempt to clarify the reasons for socialism’s premature demise.

Yuri Slezkine is the Jane K. Sather Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley. His publications include Arctic Mirrors: Russia and the Small Peoples of the North (Cornell UP, 1994), The Jewish Century (Princeton UP, 2004), The House of Government: A Family Saga of the Russian Revolution and Stalinist Reformation(Princeton UP, 2017), and numerous articles.
