ANATOMIES OF REVOLUTION: FROM THE FRENCH REVOLUTION TO ISLAMIC STATE

Friday 25 October: 6:00pm - 7:00pm

St John's College Old Divinity School, All Saints Passage, CB2 1TP

Revolution is everywhere, from people power uprisings in Sudan and Algeria to the rise of Islamic State and the emergence of populism. But how should we understand this new age of revolution? And what links contemporary movements to their predecessors in history?
George Lawson, from the Department of International Relations LSE, will explore how revolutions begin, unfold and end. His talk aims to unravel the ‘anatomies of revolution’, and to generate a nuanced understanding of the place of revolution in the contemporary world.
