Lecture Night!

Join Phi Alpha Theta for our Lecture Night! Come learn from Professor Connelly about the reverberations of the Russian Revolution and socialism in countries like Germany, Hungary, and Austria!

We associate revolution after WWI with the Bolshevik upheaval and victory, but Marxism’s founders thought Russia was unsuited to revolution. What happened in the places that Marx thought were ripe for transformation to socialism, namely the developed countries further west? In Germany, Hungary and Austria workers and soldiers formed councils, and many demanded socialism, but unlike Russia, the result was liberal democracy and continued rule of capitalism. Was this failed revolution, or was this a different kind of revolution? And if it was revolution, how did it ultimately result in fascism?
