Russian Revolution 2010 at Dickinson

On November 7, 1917, Bolshevik revolutionaries, led by Vladimir Lenin, overthrew the Russian Provisional Government in what would come to be known as the October Revolution. On November 5, 2010, Dickinsonians orchestrated their own revolution, reenacting speeches by Lev Trotskii and Vladimir Lenin in Russian and in English translation, and by storming the “Winter Palace” (Old West) in search of the leaders of the Provisional Government. Students of all levels of Russian and from a variety of departments participated in the Russian Department’s annual tradition.
