The idea of the conference originates in the conference "The Russian Intellectual Revolution," held in Moscow in fall 2014, which took a multi-disciplinary approach to the broad intellectual changes (not only in politics) in the early 20th century, most evident in the nexus linking Bolshevism with formalism and the origins of critical theory. In tribute to the originators of the conference, Sergei Zenkin will be our keynote speaker.
