Lenin 2020 edited collection—call for abstracts (Oct. 31)

Editors: Alla Ivanchikova (ivanchikova@hws.edu) and Robert Maclean (robertrmaclean@gmail.com).

This edited collection of essays seeks to answer the following question: what does “Lenin” and “Leninism” signify today? What is the future of Leninism? Why, after thirty years of iconoclasm (that involved the removal of statues of Lenin throughout the former socialist world), in spite of concerted efforts to demote, deconstruct, and discredit Leninist mode of thinking, does the specter of Lenin return to haunt our turbulent political present?
