Revolution is in the air! Undergrads, join us for a casual discussion over lunch with history professor Mark Steinberg. Professor Steinberg will discuss his book The Russian Revolution, 1905–1921, how the Russian Revolution still affects us 100 years later and how he came to this area of study.


Registration is recommended, especially for students with dietary restrictions. 


This IPRH Inside Scoop session offers an opportunity for all interested undergrads, no matter their majors, to engage with creative minds in the humanities. Lunch will be served.
