Glennys Young | The Russian Revolution and the Making of the 20th Century (1.25.2017)

February 1st, 2017

The Russian Revolution was at once a symbol of hope for the oppressed and a warning sign for those in power. It fueled decades of anticommunist ideologies and policies all over the world, but it also had unlikely connections with the Pacific Northwest. Glennys Young is a Professor in the University of Washington's Department of History and the Jackson School of International Studies. She specializes in Russia and the Soviet Union.
