Questions of race have complicated histories in Russia and the Soviet Union, where anti-racist and internationalist ideology often disguised racialization and racial conflict. Strong negative reactions to Black Lives Matter in Russia in 2020 have given these questions new attention and urgency. This symposium will bring together new perspectives on the history of race by focusing on Soviet interactions with African governments and peoples.
Hosted by The University of Texas at Austin's Department of History, Center for Russian, East European & Eurasian Studies, African & African Diaspora Studies Department, and John L Warfield Center for African & African American Studies.
