Construction and deconstruction of the 1917 Revolution memory in contemporary Russia. International Conference
26-27th October 2017, Université Grenoble Alpes (France), Institut des Langues et Cultures d’Europe, Amérique, Afrique, Asie et Australie (ILCEA4)
In this conference, the point will be to review the memory/memories of the revolutionary moment of 1917 kept and (re)constructed by Russian contemporary society. Through this memorial construction, Russia seeks its place in history. But this construction also unveils the transformations undergone by Russia after the fall of the USSR. The scale of the analysis will be twofold: at state level, implying the decisions by the present Russian powers in the field of Revolutionary memory; and socio- culturally, implying the analysis of the multiple modes in which people relate to the Revolution depending on the social groups, the discursive models opted for, the forms of opposition or reference, as well as the private and public contexts in which recalling the Revolution makes sense today.
