Frederick Paulsen Programme for support of young Russian historians

The Frederick Paulsen Foundation program is designed to support scholars who study the history of Russia in the imperial period (mid-17th century - 1918). Young Russian historians demonstrate outstanding success in research, but regularly face the problem of financing foreign trips to work in foreign archives and libraries, as well as participating in scientific discussions in international forums. At the same time, foreign historians often do not have access to the work of their colleagues in Russia. The Paulsen Foundation program will allow Russian researchers to more fully realize their research potential and make a significant contribution to the global research process. At the same time, in addition to direct financial support from Russian scientists, two major international seminars are scheduled at the Higher School of Economics in St. Petersburg in 2021 and 2022, as well as an international conference in Latvia in 2023. Following these events, in which Leading world experts in the field of the history of imperial Russia will take part, a series of publications is planned, reflecting the current state of research in this field at the highest academic level.

Understanding Russia and its role in global society cannot be confined to contemporary perspectives. By opening up access to exceptional research on the history of imperial Russia, and through knowledge exchange between Russian and non-Russian experts, the Paulsen Programme creates important new opportunities to advance research, develop meaningful analysis and promote engagement.

Questions of Russian identity, as well as contemporary Russian perceptions and anxieties can never be understood without some grasp of the underlying forces that have driven Russian history in the last half-millennium.
