Mary and Peter R. Dallman 1951 Great Issues Lecture

Origins of Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America

Timothy Snyder, Professor of History, Yale University

The Bolshevik Revolution was an end point of the first globalization. The contest between far left and far right that followed foreshadowed some of our own problems as the second globalization fades. In other respects, modern authoritarianism in Russia, Europe, and America is entirely new. The point of this lecture is to restore a sense of historical time and agency against these narratives of past and present.

Sponsors: The John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, The Leslie Center for the Humanities, The Political Economy Project, The Department of Government, The Department of Russian, The Department of History, and The Department of Film and Media Studies.
