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 Programme supported 27 projects out of 92 applications. The project emphasizes area studies by focusing on Russia in the global context. It is based on long-term cooperation between partner universities, in particular between the HSE department of history and University of Jyväskylä. The project aims to define new ways to study and teach area studies in Finland and Russia and builds upon multidisciplinary and comparative methods through novel disciplinary perspectives. The purpose of this approach is to further improve students’ professional and working life skills.
The project offers two intensive courses. They are joint courses with MA and PhD students, but also mature BA students may take part. In Finland the partners are Aleksanteri Institute/University of Helsinki (UH), and the University of Jyväskylä (JYU). In Russia, the partners are National Research University Higher School of Economics, St Petersburg campus (HSE), European University at St. Petersburg (EUSP), Perm State University (PSU) and Tomsk State University (TSU).
In addition, the project offers student and teacher mobility between the partner universities. Part of the mobility takes place within intensive courses and the other part includes mobility exchanges between partner universities, which will further intensify their cooperation. In particular, the aim of the mobility is to increase the influence of the project to the students and teachers who are not yet well familiar with area and regional studies.
