About This Event

When Mikhail Gorbachev’s glasnost reached its zenith in 1990, Capital University Professor of History Sasha Pantsov was one of the first scholars to access the Soviet Communist Party archives in Moscow. Secured in a top-secret location, this collection of documents has been a source of Dr. Pantsov’s work for thirty-one years.


Attend Capital University’s free Breakfast Briefing to broaden your understanding of China and discover how directives from Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, and other Bolshevik leaders helped shape the China of today.


Born in Moscow and a graduate of Moscow State University’s Institute of Asian and African Studies, Dr. Pantsov will take you on an exploration of the archive and its importance as a source of historical information regarding the Chinese Communist Party.


Dr. Pantsov is the author of The Bolsheviks and the Chinese Revolution 1919-1927 (University of Hawai’i Press, 2000), Mao: The Real Story (Simon & Schuster, 2012), and Deng Xiaoping: A Revolutionary Life (Oxford University Press, 2015).

About This Event

Dr. Kevin Griffith, Professor of English, will talk about his digital narrative project Brickjest.com, in which he and his then eleven-year-old son Sebastian recreated David Foster Wallace’s epic 1,079-page novel Infinite Jest by translating it into over a hundred scenes using Legos. Brickjest.com has been called “the best thing you will see on the internet all day” by Flavorwire and “unlikely to be bettered” by The Guardian. The project was completed in 2015, but both the novel and the website have more relevance today, given the rise of fake news, screen addiction, and toxic politics. Using images from the website, Griffith will illustrate how the 1996 novel eerily forecasts many of the political, environmental, and social challenges we face today.
