International Congress (25th to 27th/10/2017) – First call for papers

International Congress – 1st Call for Papers

 Barcelona, October 25th to 27th, 2017

Faculty of Geography and History of the Universitat de Barcelona



The Russian Revolution of 1917 is one of the events that more deeply marked the so-called short Twentieth Century, which began in 1914 with World War I and ended in 1991 with the demise of the Soviet Union, two milestones closely linked with the Revolution itself. We are facing a fact that pierced Russian borders, shaking the political and social life of much of the world; that served both as a reference and as a specter in mobilizing all the energies and resources in many countries; and that led to the formation of a political, economic and military power that was a protagonist of the great historical events of the past century.

For that very reason, on the occasion of the commemoration of the centenary of the Russian Revolution (1917-2017), from the Centre d’Estudis Històrics Internacionals of the Universitat de Barcelona, and through the consolidated research group GRANMA (Grup de Recerca i Anàlisi del Món Actual), we launch an international Congress to collect the contributions, in the field of historical research, about the Revolution and its international impact. Scientific contributions, in the form of papers, must be addressed to any of the six areas in which the Congress will be organized:

ƒƒWorld War I and Revolution
ƒƒRevolution and Work
ƒƒWoman and Revolution
ƒƒThe fear of Revolution
ƒƒVi sions of the Revolution
ƒƒThe implosion of Soviet Union
