The Impact of the Russian Revolution 1917-1922

A lecture on the impact of the Russian Revolution 1917-1922 which accompanies an exhibition of the same title.

Professor Mary Davis, Project Leader, and Tommy Hodgson, Project Coordinator, examine the impact of the Russian Revolution 1917-1922, with particular reference to the MML's collections. This talk accompanies the exhibition of the same title funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund currently on display at the MML, which made use of a wide range of resources including original documents, images and first-hand accounts.

The Russian Revolution was a seismic international event, which succeeded in its aims despite massive obstacles, both internally and externally. The lecture will expand on the wider impact of the revolution, so one can grasp a sense of both the inspirational power that it held for many including those in the labour movement, and the hostility it aroused in the establishment institutions of Western countries. 2017, as the centenary year of the Russian Revolution, is the most appropriate time to examine the immediate aftermath of this event and its wide-ranging influence.
