Public Seminar: 40 years of The Gulag Archipelago

Tuesday 26 February 2013, 7.30pm, Henley Business School, Whiteknights
campus

Professor Dan Healey, Department of History

In 1973, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s groundbreaking work The Gulag Archipelago was
published for the first time in Paris. Banned in Soviet Russia, the book traces the history of
the system of forced labour camps in the Soviet Union from 1918 to 1956. In this seminar,
Professor Dan Healey will explore the influence and impact of Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag
Archipelago in the tumultuous forty years since its appearance in the West, and will
explore how ‘Gulag Studies’ is challenging Solzhenitsyn’s view of Soviet forced labour.
Admission is free but places are limited.
