There’s this talk goin’ up tomorrow, which you should really go to. It’s a keynote address given by Princeton’s Stephen Kotkin (who wrote Armageddon Averted: Soviet Collapse, 1970-2000, if that means anything to you) entitled
“Surprise, Surprise: The Misunderstood Soviet Military Industrial Complex”
The lecture is the opening act of a Wesleyan academic workshop that’s going on called “What was the Soviet Union? Looking Back on the Brezhnev,” which is being organized by Government professor and professional chill-dawg Peter Rutland (or as some people like to refer to him outside of class as “P-Rutz”) as well as Russian History professor Victoria Smolkin-Rothrock, who has yet to develop a gangsta-rap nickname.
Go check it out – it’s cool shit.
Date: Tomorrow, Oct. 20
Time: 8.00 PM
Place: PAC 001
