Orthodox Believers’ Reactions to Bolshevik Militant Atheism in the Early Revolutionary Years

Monday, March 4, 2024

Harrison Hall 202

The second lecture in the Havighurst Center's spring 2024 colloquium series on "Revolutionary Russia" will focus on how Russian Orthodox believers responded to early Soviet anti-religious policies.

Christine Worobec has written numerous path-breaking books and articles, especially her monographs Peasant Russia: Family and Community in the Post-Emancipation Period (Princeton University Press), which won the Association of Women in Slavic Studies (AWSS) Heldt Prize for the Best Book by a Woman in 1991, and Possessed: Women, Witches, and Demons in Imperial Russia (Northern Illinois University Press), which won the Heldt Prize for the Best Book in Women’s Studies a decade later. Worobec has also collaborated on reference works including Women and Gender in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Eurasia: A Comprehensive Bibliography (with Mary Zirin, Irina Livezeanu, and June Pachuta-Farris). Among Worobec’s edited essay collections, Russia’s Women: Accommodation, Resistance, Transformation (with Barbara E. Clements and Barbara A. Engel) is particularly noteworthy. Most recently, she worked to map and analyze Orthodox pilgrimages in modern Ukraine and Russia.
