Remembering Soviet memory politics
How do we remember the 19th century revolutionary movement in Russia and the 1917 Revolution? How was the revolutionary narrative? The EU-funded REVMUS project will find the answers by analysing the formation of memory. It will study a group of historical revolutionary museums in Petrograd-Leningrad between 1917 and 1941. The two decades after the October Revolution witnessed a transformation of the memory landscape, as Bolshevik leaders exploited the struggle to overthrow the old regime as an instrument of political legitimacy. Particular focus will be on Petrograd-Leningrad due to its status in the Soviet memory politics – that of ‘the city of three revolutions’ and ‘the city of Lenin’.
