Honors College Professor Publishes Book About Terrorism in 1870s Russia Richard Gordon
Christopher Ely, Ph.D., associate professor of history, Wilkes Honors College, has written Underground Petersburg: Radical Populism, Urban Space, and the Tactics of Subversion in Reform-Era Russia. The book, to be published October 30, argues that the most powerful weapon of populist terrorism was the revolutionary underground it created. This underground in the heart of the Russian capital enabled radical populists to carry out a campaign of violent terror that culminated in the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, establishing a model of revolutionary violence that has been emulated globally ever since. Ely has also just served as guest editor of Russian Studies in History: Urban Space (vol. 55, no. 2). Dr. Ely specializes in the history of imperial Russia during the nineteenth century.
Florida Atlantic University, established in 1961, officially opened its doors in 1964 as the fifth public university in Florida. Today, the University, with an annual economic impact of $6.3 billion, serves more than 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students at sites throughout its six-county service region in southeast Florida. FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter presently enrolls more than 1,500 students and offers a broad range of upper-division and graduate courses. The campus houses the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College and the nation’s largest Lifelong Learning Society. The Jupiter Life Science Initiative unites scientists and students in research and training programs and leverages FAU’s close affiliations with Scripps Florida and the Max Planck Florida Institute, which are also located on the campus. As part of this effort, the university-wide Brain Institute launched on the campus in 2016 and is a hub of cutting-edge, multidisciplinary neuroscience activity that builds on existing neuroscience centers and programs within FAU. The Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology offers research and training programs in molecular biology and biotechnology and serves as a link between FAU and other institutions and industries in this field.
