Ukrainian History as World History: 1917-2017

Friday, 13 October 2017, 6:00pm - 8:30pm, IWM library

The main theme of European history in the 20th Century is the transition from empire to integration. Ukraine is the country whose experiences bring together European and global themes that allow us to see this process. 1917 is the year to begin – the anti-colonial revolution that was also a colonial revolution.

Timothy Snyder is the Richard C. Levin Professor of History at Yale University and a Permanent Fellow at the IWM.

The keynote speech by Timothy Snyder is part of the conference Revolutionary Ukraine: A Reflection on 1917 and Its Aftermath (October 13-15) and will be followed by a vernissage of the exhibition Filming the Revolution: Ukrainian Film Posters of the 1920s.
