This website accompanies a special exhibition celebrating the centenary of the Russian Revolution. The exhibition was researched and written by Professor Mary Davis and Tommy Hodgson using the same sources as this site. It was then designed by Angus Reid and printed, first being shown on May Day (International Workers’ Day) at the Marx Memorial Library (MML). It was up in the MML hall on display to the public until June 15th, where the project’s researchers hosted a talk discussing the Impact of the Russian Revolution. From June 16th to June 26th, it was then on display at the Society for Co-Operation in Russian & Soviet Studies (SCRSS) in Brixton. There was also a talk held by Professor Mary Davis on Friday 23rd June at the SCRSS (pictured below) regarding the significance of the Revolution.
On Monday July 10th, the exhibition was on display in the Knowledge Centre at the British Library (pictured below), accompanying a conference on the British Left and their reaction to the Russian Revolution. Professor Mary Davis gave a lecture on this day entitled ‘Sylvia Pankhurst & the Russian Revolution: Pioneering Solidarity’. The exhibition stayed on display at the BL for two other events related to the Russian Revolution over the next few days.
