The Upcoming Cadenhead-Settle Memorial Lecture Here at TU: "Russia 1917"

Aired on Thursday, September 14th.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. What does this revolution mean to us today? How do remember it; what lessons or themes do we draw from it? And moreover, how is the revolution thought of by Russians themselves? On this edition of ST, we speak with Donald J. Raleigh, a Distinguished Professor of Russian History at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Professor Raleigh will soon deliver a lecture here at TU titled "Russia 1917: Some Reflections on the 100th Anniversary." This address, which is the Cadenhead-Settle Memorial Lecture for 2017, will happen on Monday the 18th at Tyrrell Hall; it is free and open to all. The presentation, as noted on the TU website, "will examine the long- and short-term causes of the February Revolution of 1917 that toppled 300 years of Romanov rule; the social polarization that unfolded afterward, aggravated by the consequences of an unpopular war; and the reasons why the Bolsheviks came to power and held on to it." Also, Prof. Raleigh will bring his remarks on Russia all the way up to what's happening in that country today.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
