Dakota Irvin, ‘Regionalism, Local Government and the First Months of White Rule in Ekaterinburg, August-November 1918’

Dakota Irvin will discuss a chapter of his dissertation, which looks at the febrile experience of state building on the local level during the Russian Civil War. The lecture examines attempts by anti-Bolshevik forces (Whites) in Ekaterinburg to reconstruct a functioning system of local government after eight months of Bolshevik rule and the “dictatorship of the proletariat.” Specifically, it focuses on the efforts by liberal Lev Krol’, who founded the Regional Provisional Government of the Urals, dedicated to establishing a…

Leonid Volkov, ‘Russian Politics After Putin’

Vladimir Putin won his reelection in March 2018 with a convincing margin, but now his regime is facing probably the most complicated challenges in the last 20 years. Why is that happening? How will Russian political elite resolve the succession issue? And what are the opportunities for the opposition in this changing political environment? Leonid Volkov is a Russian politician and the chief of staff for Alexei Navalny, Russia’s main opposition leader. He is a former deputy of the Yekaterinburg…

Steven Harris, ‘Aeroflot’s Passengers Enter the Soviet Jet Age’

Like their counterparts in the West, Soviet citizens experienced the jet age in the air and on the ground. They walked through newly built, modernist terminals and boarded Tupolev and Ilyushin jets that dramatically shortened travel times—not a small change in a country with the world’s largest landmass. They complained about Aeroflot’s shortcomings from delayed flights and lost baggage to refund policies and getting bumped. And they consumed a steady stream of news and advertisements, as well as fiction and…
