Patrick Brown Receives a 2015-16 Fulbright U.S. Student Award to Russia!

April 9th, 2015

Congratulations to Patrick Brown for receiving a 2015-16 Fulbright U.S. Student Award to Russia!

Patrick’s research focuses on working-class history from 1926 to 1941: a period during which the Soviet Union mobilized all possible resources to achieve accelerated industrial growth.

While in Russia, Patrick will be examining largely neglected published and archival materials and will interview workers and the families of those who labored during the period of “socialist construction.” Focusing on two distinct industrial districts of Nizhnii Novgorod—the older Sormovo district and the new Gorky auto district—the project will explore several dimensions of working-class history: social composition, commonalities and differences (in identity, cultural norms, material condition, expectations), and the party’s effort to orchestrate rapid growth and resolve or mask these internal differences within the “single” working class.

Patrick’s research will culminate in a dissertation titled, “Revolution in the Working Class: Community, Conflict, and Identity in Nizhnii Novgorod, 1917-1941.”
