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 first part of the lecture was devoted to the emergence of citizenship as a normative category. The idea was that the concept of citizenship, which declared equality of citizens and the law, was not always embodied in practice. Moreover, it would seem that there are common features. As an example, the United States of America, which did not have political rights, could be used. A significant research interest is the concept of citizenship, in which there are certain groups. In turn, in this institute there existed a large number of disparate groups. In the second part of the XIX century in the Far East. The empire was Chinese and Korean. It is significant that by 1917 the number of jobs, especially for the Far East. This, in turn, gave rise to various conflicts on the basis of racial division, allowed before the Chinese pogroms and uprisings. Interestingly, the Russian Empire lacked qualified officials. One of the consequences of this is the excessive entanglement of the treatises. The incorporation of the northern part of Manchuria, for example, was accompanied by various legal incidents. The population living only in the territory joining Russia was declared a subject of the Qing empire.
