Russia and 1914: Nothing new to say?
Professor Dominic Lieven
Senior Research Fellow, Trinity College, Cambridge and Fellow, British Academy
One hundred years to the day after a mass strike in Petrograd launched what became the February Revolution (7 March 1917 = 22 February o.S.), distinguished historian of Russia Dominic Lieven will focus on the international history of one of the great turning points of the 20th century, while also reflecting on the scholarly journey that has taken him from his first book Russia and the Origins of the First World War (1983) to his latest study Towards the Flame: Empire, War and the End of Tsarist Russia (2015). What might appear as ‘in one sense a self-indulgent intellectual autobiography’ can at the same time serve as an object lesson in how shifting questions and fresh archival sources ensure that 'History' as a discipline never stands still.
