Stephen Kotkin: Six Futures of Russia—Why We Need History (and Libraries)

04/24/2024 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Since winning a predetermined election that will keep him in office until 2030, Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin is facing a crisis of succession. This personalistic autocracy puts Putin’s legacy, and Russia’s future as a whole, in question. Historian Stephen Kotkin examines the uncertain times ahead, and the ways in which our understanding of the past can help us see potential paths forward. The program will open with a short talk by Bogdan Horbal, the curator for Slavic and East European collections. This event will take place on April 24th at 7 PM.
