Distilled Pub Talks:

What Remains of the Bolshevik Revolution?

Wednessday, December 6, 2017 | 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

The Half Penny | 3743 Commercial Street SE, Salem

Willamette’s second event in its Distilled: Pub Talks speaker series will feature historian Bill Smaldone, who will present “What Remains of the Bolshevik Revolution?”

A century ago, the Bolshevik Revolution overthrew capitalism in Russia and established a new communist society, the Soviet Union. “By challenging the established world order, the Bolshevik Revolution inspired millions of people around the world to fight for radical change,” says Smaldone. “At the same time it mobilized millions who feared it and aimed to destroy it.

Now — one hundred years after the revolution came to power and a quarter century after the Soviet Union’s demise — it’s worth taking stock of the revolution’s legacy in America and the world.”

Smaldone’s research focuses on 20th century German and European labor. In addition to a textbook on the history of socialism, he’s written two books involving German Social Democrats before and during the rise of Adolph Hitler.

Most recently, Smaldone translated and edited two volumes of documents about European socialist thought during the first half of the 20th century.

Free and open to the public!

History in the News:

Oregon’s Own History of Sexual Violence and Harassment

Thursday, November 16, 5:30-7:00 pm

Willamette Heritage Center | 1313 Mill St SE, Salem, OR

Millions of people have recently disclosed their experiences of sexual harassment and assault on social media. Oregon is no exception.

This roundtable puts current conversations about sexual harassment and assault in historical perspective. Are we at a pivotal moment in changing the cultural attitudes and workplace practices that sustain such abuse? What has changed, and not changed? Why have efforts to expose and prevent harassment and assault faltered or met resistance in the past? Please join us for conversation with experts in politics, policy, and the law.

History in the News is free and open to the public.

Food and drink will be available for purchase from Taproot Lounge & Café.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities (OH), a statewide nonprofit organization and an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which funds OH’s grant program.

History in the News is sponsored by KMUZ Community Radio, and presented in partnership with Salem City Club.
