NYU Center for Global Affairs Special Event- Russia: When’s the Next Revolution? Nov. 7

October 26, 2012
N-88, 2012-13

On the 95th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS) Center for Global Affairs (GCI), in partnership with the NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia, presents a panel discussion, “Russia: When’s the Next Revolution?”  November 7, 2012, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

The discussion, moderated by Yanni Kotsonis, director, NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia, will ask questions about Russia’s future: is dramatic change on the way, or will we look back at the present ferment as a passing irrelevance? Can Putin recover his former mastery of his country, or is his rule and the system he built truly in trouble?

Panelists include:

Mark Galeotti, clinical professor and academic chair, Center for Global Affairs
Alex Kliment, senior Russia analyst, Eurasia Group
Julia Ioffe, staff writer, The New Republic
William Partlett, Associate-in-Law, Columbia Law School; nonresident fellow, Brookings Institution
Moderated by Yanni Kotsonis, director, NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia

The event is free and open to the public.  Space is limited, and reservations are required. Please visit the Center’s website to RSVP: http://tinyurl.com/97bbwb4

The event takes place at CGI’s location at the Woolworth Building, Room 430, 15 Barclay Street [between Broadway and Church Street].  By subway, take the R or W to City Hall; the 4, 5 or 6 to City Hall/Brooklyn Bridge; the 2 or 3 to Park Place; or the A or C to Chambers Street.   For more information, the public may contact the Center by phone at 212-992-8380 or by email at scps.global.affairs@nyu.edu.

The Center for Global Affairs (CGA), within NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies, facilitates change by educating and inspiring a community of global citizens capable of identifying and implementing solutions to pressing global challenges. Through rigorous graduate and continuing education programs and provocative public events, CGA prepares global citizens who will be at home—and thus be effective agents of change—in environments around the world.

The Jordan Center undertakes to make Russia intrinsic to all aspects of scholarly investigation: from politics to literature, economics to anthropology, history to visual culture. Joining the ranks of US and western universities with distinguished traditions of inquiry and expertise on matters Russian and Soviet, the Center is distinguished by its particular mission of situating Russia in a global context. It aims both to help educate Russia specialists on the interconnectedness of Russia with the world and to remind other fields of Russia’s ubiquity. While recognizing that any country is best understood as part of a global economy, culture, and politics, the Center works to ensure that Russia’s dramatic and enduring influence is an integral part of every conversation.
