Toward a Free and Virtuous Society: Marxism a Century after the Bolshevik Revolution

2017 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia that ended the Romanov Dynasty and ushered in the formation of the Soviet Union. Fueled by a fanatical commitment to Marxist ideology, Vladimir Lenin and the Communist Party set in motion a series of events that would shape the contours of the 20th Century and that would lead to the deaths of millions of people. The scope of Marxism is vast, touching nearly every area of public and private life. This conference will examine the ways in which Marxism has impacted even the cultural landscape of the West and the ways in which the events of October 1917 are still with us today.

Space is limited and participants will be accepted on a rolling basis. All accepted applicants will receive lodging, conference meals, conference materials, and a travel stipend* from the Acton Institute.

*Travel reimbursement will only be provided for travel within North America
