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.

This year the Department of History expanded its international activities in terms of organization of seminars, conferences and summer schools as well as visiting professors program. We continued our work in the international research project “Comparative Historical Studies of Empire and Nationalism” directed by Ronald Suny and continued our collaboration with DAAD on the basis of the DAAD long-term professorship at the department. We opened a new international Master of Arts program “Usable Pasts” directed by Julia Lajus. The contribution of our international partners has proved crucial for this expansion. We are very much looking forward to working with you and to welcoming you at the Department of History and Center for Historical Research in the New Year of 2016!
