CREECA Fall 2021 Lecture Series

To the Success of Our Hopeless Cause: The Many Lives of the Soviet Dissident Movement with Benjamin Nathans

Date

Time
4-5:15 p.m.
Location
Description
This talk investigates how, as products themselves of the Soviet order, dissidents arrived at a conception of law and human personality so at odds with official norms. Understanding this process – how orthodoxies contain the seeds of their own heresies, and how dissidents promoted the containment of Soviet power from within – promises to illuminate the broader problem of how citizens of authoritarian societies conceive and act on options for political engagement.
