“Seeing the Russian Anarchist Mikhail Bakunin As He Was” : a lecture by Dr. Robert Cutler
February 11, 2015 at 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM
|Location:||3302 River Building Richcraft Hall|
In conjunction with the Department of History, EURUS is very pleased to host Dr. Robert Cutler for his upcoming lecture titled: “Seeing the Russian Anarchist Mikhail Bakunin As He Was: Dissolving the Historiographic Myths about his Personality and Ideas”.
M.A Bakunin (1814-1876) was arguably the most cosmopolitan and widely influential of the 19th century revolutionaries. Although Bakunin is best known for his conflict with Marx inside the First International in the 1860s, this was only a part of his activity. This seminar examines and critiques the dominant historiographic and interpretive traditions of Bakunin, and in doing so offers a more objective and balanced evaluation of his continuing relevance.
