Deadline for Abstracts: September 10, 2016

Slavic Review Call for papers, Special Fall 2017 Issue: The 100 year anniversary of the Russian revolutions

Social protest movements across the political spectrum and the globe indicate the continuing importance of the 1917 Russian revolutions. For a special Fall 2017 issue of Slavic Review we seek short essays not previously published that draw on original scholarly research. The essays should provide a significant new interpretative and analytic framework for the concept of revolution generally and particularly on the global impact of the 1917 events in the short and long term, in Russia and Eastern Europe and beyond, and their extended repercussions and legacy to the present day across national boundaries and realms of human endeavor.  All disciplines are welcome. Manuscripts (in English) should highlight the conceptual impact and analytic and interpretative themes of the work.

Papers will be 3000 words maximum, not including notes. Abstracts of a few sentences must be submitted by September 10, 2016 to the editor at; those given the green light must be developed into papers by November 10, 2016. (This leaves time for review and rewriting for a final deadline of early February 2017).
