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 Conference was dedicated to discussing the role of patron-client relations and informal practices in modern societies, from early modern to modernity. The conference participants, political scientists and historians, discussed the research methods and the role of informal relations in the government, science and culture, from the perspective of various disciplines. Vladimir Uspensky presented a paper on 'Informal Ties Within Official Service Elite’, where he explains the opportunities to observe and study the relations between patrons and protégées in the sovereign’s court in 16th century Russia in the context of the lack of sources that are commonly used to study patron-client relations in the Early modern period in Europe.
