  • Post-Show Conversation with Dr. Elizabeth Wood

    Elizabeth Wood teaches Russian and Soviet History at MIT, where she also co-directs the MIT-Russia Program. She has written three books – one on gender (The Baba and the Comrade: Gender and Politics in Revolutionary Russia), one on mock trials performed as drama pieces (Performing Justice: Agitation Trials in Early Soviet Russia), and one (co-authored) on war (Roots of Russia’s War in Ukraine), so she is looking forward to The Revolutionists and its story of revolution, war and gender.

Ghachem is a historian and lawyer.  His primary areas of concentration are slavery and abolition, criminal law, and constitutional history.  He is the author of The Old Regime and the Haitian Revolution (Cambridge University Press, 2012), a history of the law of slavery in Saint-Domingue (Haiti) between 1685 and 1804.
