National Self-Determination During the Russian Civil War: The Views of Constitutional-Democratic Émigrés

Thursday, March 7, 2019
Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room, 1219 International Affairs Building (420 W 118th St)

Please join us for a talk with Julia Klimova (School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London).

This talk will revolve around the Constitutional-Democratic (Kadet) Party during the Russian Civil War. Drawing from archival research involving the papers of Kadet émigrés, Klimova will focus on how the Kadets reacted to the emergence of nation-states within the Russian Empire in the aftermath of the First World War. She will also explore how the Kadet Party's policies were intertwined with the wider context of the Russian Civil War and the Whites' struggle against Bolshevism.

Julia Klimova is a PhD candidate at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London. In her PhD she explores liberal émigrés during 1917-1920s and their outlook on the nationalities policies in Russia. She holds an MA from the University of St Andrews and MSc from the University of Oxford.
