Partnership with University of Jyvaskyla

Alexander Semyonov took part in the faculty exchange as part of the partnership between the department of history  HSE St Petersburg at the department of history and ethnology of the University of Jyvaskyla that has been supported for the second year by the grant from the Center for International Education (Finland).

He taught classes on theories of nationalism, theories of empire and colonialism, history of the 1917 revolutions and history of the Russian Empire’s dissolution/transformation in 1917. He discussed the experience of the partnership with Jyvaskyla faculty and Jyvaskyla students who have been in St. Petersburg and with the HSE St. Petersburg students who are currently on exchange in Jyvaskyla. 

As part of the visit he also took part in the Conference “Reform and Revolution in Europe, 1917-1919” dedicated to the Centennial of Independence of Finland in Tampere organised by the Government Committee of Finland’s 100 Anniversary and the Finnish Historical Society. His paper at the opening of the conference was focused on the question of interpreting 1917 in the context of imperial politics and imperial collapse/transformation.
