Utopia’s Discontents: Russian Émigrés and the Quest for Freedom, 1830s-1930s

December 3, 2020 | 1:00PM

In the last fifty years of the tsarist regime, large and boisterous settlements of Russian exiles emerged across the European continent. Called “Russian colonies” by their residents, these communities hosted the leaders of virtually every revolutionary party and produced most of the illegal literature that circulated in late imperial Russia. Faith Hillis’ book is the first comprehensive account of the Russian revolutionary movement abroad, providing a novel reassessment of the Russian revolution. Registration is required for this event. The Zoom invitation will be sent to those who register.
