The Department of History was created in 2012. The overarching goal of the department is systematic development of the field of global, comparative, and transnational history as a potent tool of overcoming the limitations of national history canon, fostering interdisciplinary dialogue in the field of social sciences and humanities, and brining new public relevance to historical knowledge. The department mission includes the development of new type of historical undergraduate and graduate education in Russia and pioneering new research fields in Russian historiography in dialogue with the global historical profession.

The workshop was dedicated to post-colonial development of the Third World countries, with a special focus on environmental history. The papers and discussions included such issues as decolonization and modernization, USA’s and USSR’s development programmes in Africa, nature management, resources, technological impact on the environment etc. Elena Kochetkova spoke on ‘Soviet Technological Aid and Environment in Africa in the Late Cold War’, which was based on the results of a study as part of the Centre for Historical Research project ‘History of technology and infrastructure in Russia and the Soviet Union: standardization processes and practices and their participants’. Part of the project studies the role of Soviet engineers in Africa’s post-colonial development and particularly the history of building hydro power stations in new independent countries. The paper was prepared together with Julia Lajus, the project head, and two research assistants, 3rd-year students, Polina Sliusarchuk and Anna Vladimirova.
