Red Petrograd: Revolution in the Factories, 1917-1918

Speaker: Steve Smith (University of Oxford)

When the Russian autocracy fell in February 1917, workers across Petrograd took it as a signal to begin democratizing every aspect of their lives, including their working lives. In this talk, Steve Smith revisits his classic book 'Red Petrograd', which vividly captured the creation, development, and expansion of the factory councils across the city.
