The Russian Revolution 1917-1922 and its impact on World War 1 and the British & European Labour Movement

We are excited to announce the launch of a website (The Russian Revolution 1917-1922 and its impact on World War 1 and the British & European Labour Movement) to accompany a special exhibition celebrating the centenary of the Russian Revolution.

The exhibition was researched and written by Professor Mary Davis and Tommy Hodgson using the same sources as this site. It was then designed by Angus Reid and printed, first being shown on May Day (International Workers’ Day) at the Marx Memorial Library (MML). It was up in the MML hall on display to the public until June 15th, where the project’s researchers hosted a talk discussing the Impact of the Russian Revolution. From June 16th to June 26th, it was then on display at the Society for Co-Operation in Russian & Soviet Studies (SCRSS) in Brixton. There was also a talk held by Professor Mary Davis on Friday 23rd June at the SCRSS (pictured below) regarding the significance of the Revolution.
