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. The conference is organized by a team from the National University of Singapore and Sciences Po Paris, headed by Professors Naoko Shimazu and Sabine Dullin, under generous funding from a Universite Sorbonne Paris Cite-National University of Singapore grant.
Date: 16-17 November 2017
