The summer School “The Topography of Imperial Power: The Political and Cultural Space of Saint Petersburg” is opened

Today there took place an opening ceremony of the International Summer School “The Topography of Imperial Power: The Political and Cultural Space of Saint Petersburg”. It was organized by the Department of History, HSE in St. Petersburg. 

Welcome words were given by the Academic Director of the School of Social Sciences and Humanities, HSE St. Petersburg Christopher Gerry, as well as by assistant professors of the Department of History Dr Dietmar Wulff, and Dr Nathan Marcus.

The Summer School is organized for students with majors in social sciences and humanities. The curriculum includes Russian language classes, presentations, workshops, partially held in Saint Peterburg’s public space, and master classes. 

Between 1712 and 1917, Saint Petersburg was the capital of the powerful Russian Empire. Here were all important political institutions of the Empire. They produced a social space, which is the main subject of the Summer School.
