Tuesday, July 10th - The Russian Revolution

300 years of czarist rule came to end in a year marked by two revolutions, both of which were doomed to fail as they attempted to employ Western European ideas in a nation caught between two continents and lost in time.

Tuesday, July 17th - Indian Independence

This revolution and its use of civil disobedience and non-violence challenged established notions of power and authority while introducing the world to an essential methodology for exposing injustice. This lecture will explore essential events in the struggle for Indian independence and the Hindu ideals that informed Gandhi’s methods.

July 24th - Communist China:

Mao’s communist revolution in China is the greatest example of this process of experimentation gone wrong. Mao’s ongoing policies of revolution will ultimately take the lives of approximately 78 million Chinese citizens. This lecture will explore his policies and their consequences.

July 30th - 1989:

Explore a year full of explosive and far-reaching changes. Nations around the world struggled with the removal of communist control in Eastern Europe, decolonization efforts continued in Africa, there were challenges to authority around the world, and a superpower was in its death throes. This lecture will touch on the impact of these changes.
