C4P for a thematic session at the International Congress of Historical Geographers in Warsaw, July 2018
Round anniversaries of historical events always urge scholars to discuss causes and effects of the latter. The Russian Revolution belongs without any doubts to such events. Yet so far, scholars’ attention has been devoted mainly to internal aspects of processes and occurrences, which led to the transformation of the Russian Empire into the Soviet Union.
Dear colleagues, the following publication might be of interest to members of the list:
Pestel, Friedemann, Rieke Trimçev, Feindt Gregor, and Félix Krawatzek. "Special Issue: European Memory: Universalising the Past?". European Review of History/Revue européenne d'histoire 24, no. 3 (2017).
Articles are available here and the table of Content looks as follows
