Communism merged multiple theories, events and experiences.  It's complexity does not lie exclusively in the discrepancies that separate the communist idea from its historical embodiments; it lies in the diversity of its expressions.  Sketching its "anatomy," this seminar will distinguish at least four broad forms of communism, interrelated and not necessarily opposed to one another, but different enugh to be recognized on their own: communism as revolution, communism as regime, communism as anti-colonialism and communism as a varient of social democracy.  The October Revolution was their common matrix, but their trajectories have been different.  Exploring communism as a global experience, we will shape the profile of one of the central actors of the twentieth century.
