Lecture with Sarah Badcock, University of Nottingham, UK


Location: 1050 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

Sarah Badcock is professor of modern history on the faculty of arts at the University of Nottingham, UK.

Badcock's work is primarily concerned with exploring the locations of power and the mechanisms of control in the relationships between individuals and the State. She has interrogated these questions through the lenses of revolution, state transformation and punishment in late Imperial and revolutionary Russia, emphasizing and prioritizing individual lived experience over state practice and policy. Badcock is also interested in comparative perspectives on questions of punishment, free and unfree labour, and penal cultures. Her latest project explores late Imperial Russian rural society through the work of the Russian artist Ilya Repin.

Badcock's most recent book, A Prison without walls? Eastern Siberian Exile in the last years of Tsarism (Oxford University Press, 2016) was joint winner of the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies Women's Forum prize for best book.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
