Master’s programme 'Applied and Interdisciplinary History «Usable Pasts»'
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 duration of the project is 3 years (2016 – 2018). The project is directed towards the advancement of current academic narratives concerning the history of Russia with specific reference to the problems of use and social construction of nature and natural resources based on analysis of economic institutes, communities of experts and infrastructures. The project is inherently interdisciplinary in nature and will stimulate the development of a critical environmental history in Russia. New knowledge which will be gained as a result of the collaborative work of historians working in the fields of environmental, economic and technological history will enhance significantly our understanding of the processes of interaction between people and nature in the past and facilitate the incorporation of such understanding within contemporary political and decision-making processes concerning the rational use of nature and of natural resources.
