GBRS new Hon President (Email from 16th April 2016)

Dear All

Following the untimely death of our Honorary President Katya Genieva, I am delighted to announce on behalf of the Great Britain-Russia Society that Professor Geoffrey Hosking OBE, FBA , F.R.Hist.S, has agreed to be our Honorary President.  Geoffrey Hosking was Leverhulme Professor of Russian History at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College, London University.  He is well known to the Society, having served as a Honorary Vice President for a number of years and has been a speaker on several occasions.   Professor Hosking is also a well-known author on the Russian scene with books such as "Russia:  People and Empire" (1998) and "Russia and the Russians" (2001) recognized for their very clear insight into Russia.
