flyer for The Stalinist Gulag and its Legacy: A Teach-In


How did the Gulag shape life in the Soviet Union, and how does its legacy continue to weigh on Russia and other post-Soviet states today? What did prisoners experience, and how were these experiences shaped by their identity? How is the Gulag remembered, and why is this memory a source of ongoing conflict in Russia?

This teach-in will bring together scholars who collaborated on a new edited volume, Rethinking the Gulag: Identities, Sources, Legacies (Indiana University Press, 2022): a work that reexamines the Gulag and its legacies in the former Soviet Union today.
