Politics of Memory in Russia: Commemoration of the 1917 Revolutions by Systemic and Non-Systemic Actors
Political Analysis and Public Policy
(Master’s programme)
2018
The Revolution(s) of 1917 is a turning point in the Russian history. The Great October Socialistic Revolution for decades served as a ‘foundation myth’ in USSR. Its role has changed after the collapse of the regime. Official memory discourse has chosen another date as ‘foundation myth’ while any ‘revolutionary sentiment’ is perceived as negative. However, in 2017, the world commemorates the Russian Revolution(s) which also makes it hard for Russian political elite to ignore the jubilee. This thesis analyses commemoration discourses of the 1917 Revolution(s) in the year of its centenary – 2017. It concentrates on both systemic and no-systemic actors and provides a clear picture of how the event was commemorated.
