REEEC faculty affiliate Maria Todorova (Edward William and Jane Marr Gutgsell Professor of History) will be giving a book launch talk and Q&A as part of the FRINGE and Southeast European Seminar Series at University College London (UCL) on March 10th at 4:00 PM London Time (10 AM CST).
The Lost World of Socialists at Europe's Margins: Imagining Utopia, 1870s-1920s
March 10, 2021
4:00-5:30 PM London Time (10:00-11:30 AM CST)
Maria Todorova will talk about her latest book, The Lost World of Socialists at Europe’s Margins: Imagining Utopia, 1870s–1920s (Bloomsbury Academic 2020). She will discuss the ‘golden age’ of the socialist idea, exploring the period of the Second International. It will examine the promise for an alternative socialist utopia, moving beyond the traditional historiographical emphasis on ideology, into intersections of spaces, generations, genders, ideas and feelings, and different flows of historical time.
Following the talk, there will be a Q&A session. Participants are encouraged to read the book before the session.
Please note the event will begin at 4pm London time, GMT.
Registration is free but essential via Zoom.
