Professor Jonathan Schneer is coming to the History Society to talk about his soon to be published book: 'The Lockhart Plot: Love, Assassination and Attempted Regime Change in Lenin's Russia’.
The talk will hopefully shed light on the unclear and hotly debated historical theory that 100 years ago in
1918, the British government were involved in a plot to kill Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, only months after the Bolsheviks had come to power in Russia after the Revolution.
Professor Schneer is the Beaufort Visiting Scholar to St John’s this lent term, from his normal role as modern British historian at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. He has been a fellow of the American Council of Learned Societies, and is a recipient of a Whiting Fellowship. He served for many years on the editorial boards of the Radical History Review and Twentieth Century British History.
It will take place on Monday 19th February @ 5:15pm in the Castlereagh room in the Fisher Building of St John's College.
