Associate professor Lennart Samuelson, affiliate researcher at SITE, discusses how the scholarly community, historians and archivists in Russia are dealing with the demands of the politicians, as well as of the general public on presenting coherent, objective and engaging history-writing on Russia’s tumultuous 20th century. The presentation is based on his participation in three conferences in Moscow and Samara during 2013-2014.
