Professor Mark Galeotti: Tuesday 25 May, 7.30pm (Online Event)
A Short History of Russia (the country that keeps re-inventing itself)
Every country rewrites its history, every nation picks its past, but few countries and nations as assiduously as Russia. Why has there been such a need for the constant re-invention of Russia's thousand-year history, and what are the continuities between medieval Muscovy, the Tsars' Russia, the Soviet Union and today's nation? And how is Vladimir Putin trying to redefine the past to control the future?

Dr Mark Galeotti is a scholar, writer and consultant on Russia. Educated at Cambridge and the LSE, he went on to become Head of History at Keele University, an adviser at the Foreign Office, Professor of Global Affairs at New York University and Head of the Centre for European Security at the Institute of International Affairs Prague. Having been a visiting professor at Rutgers-Newark, MGIMO (Moscow) and Charles University, he is now based back in the UK. He heads the consultancy Mayak Intelligence and is an Honorary Professor at UCL and a Senior Associate Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute. A prolific writer, his recent titles include The Vory: Russia's super mafia, We Need To Talk About Putin and A Short History of Russia.
