NYU-SCPS Center for Global Affairs Special Event – Russia: When's the Next Revolution

On the 95th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, the New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS) Center for Global Affairs (CGA), in partnership with the NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia, presents a panel discussion, “Russia: When’s the Next Revolution?”  November 7, 2012, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

The discussion, moderated by Yanni Kotsonis, director, NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia, will ask questions about Russia’s future: is dramatic change on the way, or will we look back at the present ferment as a passing irrelevance? Can Putin recover his former mastery of his country, or is his rule and the system he built truly in trouble?

Panelists include:

  • Mark Galeotti, clinical professor and academic chair, NYU-SCPS Center for Global Affairs
  • Alex Kliment, senior Russia analyst, Eurasia Group
  • Julia Ioffe, staff writer, The New Republic
  • William Partlett, Associate-in-Law, Columbia Law School; nonresident fellow, Brookings Institution
  • Moderated by Yanni Kotsonis, director, NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia

About the NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia
The Jordan Center undertakes to make Russia intrinsic to all aspects of scholarly investigation: from politics to literature, economics to anthropology, history to visual culture. Joining the ranks of US and western universities with distinguished traditions of inquiry and expertise on matters Russian and Soviet, the Center is distinguished by its particular mission of situating Russia in a global context. It aims both to help educate Russia specialists on the interconnectedness of Russia with the world and to remind other fields of Russia’s ubiquity. While recognizing that any country is best understood as part of a global economy, culture, and politics, the Center works to ensure that Russia’s dramatic and enduring influence is an integral part of every conversation.
