Public lecture by Margaret Paxson

Memory and Landscape: Russia

What is the place and power of social memory in rural Russia? The speaker, Margaret Paxson, takes us to a small village in the Russian North where a cluster of farmers has lived for centuries in the time of tsars and feudal landlords; Bolsheviks and civil wars; collectivization and socialism; perestroika and open markets. The study of memory there has lessons to offer about how we approach the problem of social change more generally: what are the dynamics of large-scale social experiments when they meet deeply wrought local practice?

Margaret Paxson is currently Senior Associate at the Kennan Institute, and a Visiting Scholar at George Washington University’s Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies.
