The interdisciplinary Russian Studies Workshop is having a special May Day meeting on May 1, when they will discuss a chapter by Flora Roberts (Dept. of History, University of Chicago), entitled “Purging the Old Elites (1933-1938)”, from her dissertation, “Old Elites under Communism: a case study of Soviet Khujand”. Refreshments will be available at 4:15, and we will begin our discussion at 4:30.

The chapter is now available on the workshop’s chalk site
under “Current Paper.” An additional selection will become available on chalk shortly. If you do not have access to the chalk site, please email Leah Goldman at, and she will send you a copy. Please also contact Leah if you have any questions, comments, claims against the bourgeoisie, or otherwise need assistance.

Differently abled persons who may need assistance are requested to email Workshop Coordinator Leah Goldman in advance at
