Welcome to Episode 1
Welcome to “Episodes in Gulag History,” a series of conversations with scholars about the history and legacy of the Soviet Gulag system led by Steve Barnes, George Mason University professor and Lead Historian for Gulag: Many Days, Many Lives. “Episodes” is made possible with the support of the Kennan Institute and Title VIII of the U.S. Department of State.
This inaugural Episode features Lynne Viola, Professor of History at the University of Toronto, discussing her recent book, The Unknown Gulag: The Lost World of Stalin’s Special Settlements, that explores the life and fate of millions of peasants sent into exile in Siberia, the Soviet Far North and Central Asia in the early 1930s during collectivization and the campaign to liquidate the kulaks as a class.
