The Russian Revolution of 1917 changed the course of human history. From the Tsar’s fall in February to the overthrow of the provisional government in October, ordinary Russians took centre stage in one of the great political dramas of the modern world. To mark these momentous events 100 years on , the Russian Revolution Centenary Committee is organising a one-day conference in London. We will be welcoming speakers from across Britain and around the world to discuss Russian revolutionary history, politics and culture and relevance today.

Please note: Richard Leonard MSP is no longer able to attend due to campaigning commitments. We are pleased however to welcome an additional speaker, John Pampallis, from the National Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences in South Africa who’ll be speaking in the session on The Russian Revolution and the Third World.

Please also note that the time of the Russian Revolution and the Third World session has changed to 11.30 and the October and Soviet Cinema session is now at 15.30.
