To the Success of Our Hopeless Cause: On Soviet Dissidents


This colloquium will explore the idea and practice of rights and the rule of law in an unlikely setting: late Soviet socialism.  The attached prologue offers a framework for understanding how Soviet dissidents, themselves products of Soviet civilization, created the Cold War’s “other” civil rights movement.  Understanding this process - how orthodoxies contain the seeds of their own heresies - promises to shed light on a movement whose goal was to promote the containment of the Soviet state from within.
