George Gilbert is speaking at the Schools Festival.
MONDAY 22nd - SUNDAY 28th JUNE 2020
SEE HISTORY. HEAR HISTORY. FEEL HISTORY. #AMAZINGHISTORY
Dr George Gilbert is a Lecturer in Modern Russian History at the University of Southampton.
Before coming to Southampton he held teaching posts at Balliol College, Oxford and at the University of East Anglia, where he completed all of his degrees. He is a historian of modern European and world history, though more specifically of late imperial Russia and the Soviet Union. His past research has included study of right-wing movements in early twentieth-century Russia; as well as continuing explorations in the history of nationalism in the late imperial period, his current research interests include cases of religious and political martyrdom in late imperial Russia and the early Soviet Union. Linking these research topics are broader interests in social and cultural history, and, in particular, themes of nationalism, national identity and commemorative culture. He will be speaking at the Schools’ Festival.
