Upcoming talks and an archive of interviews about Blood of Others: Stalin's Crimean Atrocity and the Poetics of Solidarity (2022)
In this book talk at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies at University College London (UCL SSEES), Rory Finnin confronts the legacy of Russian and Soviet settler colonialism in Crimea and discusses the need for what historian Mykhailo Hrushevs'kyi called 'a Black Sea orientation' in the field of Ukrainian Studies. Through examples of poetry and film, he also explores the idea of Crimea in Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar cultures after 2014.
In a book launch co-organised by the European Parliament Liaison Office in the United Kingdom and the Ukrainian Institute London, Rory Finnin discusses Blood of Others with writer James Meek and confronts the phenomenon of Russian and Soviet settler colonialism, which he calls “a defining historical and political phenomenon too often swept under the academic rug and ignored in political discourse.”
Alongside Cambridge colleagues Anna Berman and Stanley Bill, Rory Finnin discusses Blood of Others: Stalin's Crimean Atrocity and the Poetics of Solidarity at Trinity College, Cambridge.
