The Santiago Center is teaming up with three Chilean universities --Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Universidad de Chile, and Universidad Católica de Chile-- to organize a series of talks to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. From September 2017 to January 2018, scholars from different disciplines will address different aspects of this major uprising, including Columbia’s Catherine Evtuhov (a specialist in the history of Russia), who gave a lecture entitled "Was there a Revolution in 1917? A view from Russia's Imperial Period." There will also be presentations on the Russian Revolution in the context of other major political and social rebellions, its impact in Latin America and the role of the Red Army in the Second World War. In mid-October, Marjorie Agosin, professor of Spanish at Wellesley College, a poet and literary critic,  taught a master-class entitled "Anna Akhmatova: Between History and Poetry."

The next events are scheduled for December 6,  December 13 and January 8. The complete schedule of lectures is listed here in Spanish.
