The Russian Revolution and Britain, 1917-1928

One hundred years ago two revolutions in Russia changed the course of world history – see original archives about the 1917 Russian Revolution and its influence on Britain in the Modern Record Centre’s current exhibition.

Between 25 September - 7 October, we will also host the 'The impact of the Russian Revolution on World War I', a travelling panel exhibition from the Marx Memorial Library, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.


Past events:

Community Speaker Series

The Community Speakers Series offered an opportunity for community members, independent scholars, academics, and students to come together to discuss a topic of importance or interest to the local community. Each talk was accompanied by an interactive exhibition of related archival material held at the MRC.

Open Education Series

The Open Education Series was a monthly series of events organized by students at the University of Warwick on topics that have been mostly excluded or challenge the Eurocentric academic curriculum. The series utilised the resources of the MRC, a unique archive housing primary sources on modern British social, political and economic history and allowed for attendees to engage with original source material.

Archives Alive

A project that involved working with local schools to develop pupils' research skills and encourage them to engage with primary sources.
