Vom 24. bis zum 26. November 2017 fand in Sankelmark die Tagung "1917 and the Consequences" statt. Die Konferenz hatte zum Ziel, Akademikerinnen und Akademiker aus verschiedenen europäischen Ländern zusammenzubringen und einen interdisziplinären Blick darauf zu werfen, wie die Russische Revolution in unterschiedlichen nationalen Kontexten rezipiert und interpretiert wurde. Die Ergebnisse der Konferenz ermöglichen ein Verständnis, wie stark die Russische Revolution Verbindungen und Abhängigkeiten zwischen einzelnen Ländern geprägt hat. Darüber hinaus präsentierte die Tagung eine große Anzahl theoretischer Ansätze zur Analyse der Entwicklungen des 20. Jahrhunderts. 

The international conference “1917 and the Consequences”, organized by the Sigmund Neumann Institute and the University of Southern Denmark, and supported by the Bundesstiftung Aufarbeitung, aimed at bringing together scholars from various European universities and examine national reactions and interpretations of the 1917 Russian Revolutions in an interdisciplinary context. The research presented at the conference offers a glimpse of how interconnected and interdependent various countries and regions became as a result of the Russian Revolutions, and provided theoretical and conceptual frameworks for understanding the political and historical developments of the 20th century.
