2017 is a centennial of the Russian revolution which generated a series of revolutions in the world. The following changes led to the global bipolar division and transformed the system of power relations on macro and micro levels, social and economic structures of the society. That is why on the 100th anniversary of the revolution this topic becomes the focus of socio-political and academic discourse. What’s the difference between modern and postmodern revolutions in terms of their impact on gender relations and social structure? What role do religious and national factors have and what is the reason for their strengthening in social movements at the end the 20th century? Is the globalization of revolution possible in the 21st century?
All these issues are to be discussed at the Summer school.
