About the School

The School of History was created in 2015 on the basis of HSE’s Faculty of History. The School’s instructors are leading historians and the authors of academic monographs, textbooks, and teaching manuals that are used in various fields of historical studies. Faculty members represent or head the most important scientific schools, such as the social and political history of Russia, Ancient Rus’ history, historical anthropology, medieval studies, the history of ideas, the theory of historical knowledge, visual studies, source studies, special historical disciplines and others. The School works actively with leading foreign universities and research centres, and organizes international academic conferences, symposiums, and colloquiums.

Researchers at our school work together with many leading European and American centres and research organisations, including Stanford University, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; Harvard University, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; the University of California, Berkeley; the University of California, Los Angeles; The City University of New York, Columbia University, University in Tübingen, the University of London, Paris-Sorbonne University, the University of Beijing, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, The American Council of Learned Societies,  The American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies, The International Commission for the History of Towns, The International Humanities Association, and the US State Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Many school lecturers have worked as visiting professors in European and American universities, including Paris-Sorbonne University (France), University in Tübingen (Germany), Stanford University (USA), University of Warsaw (Poland), Carnegie Mellon University (USA), the universities of Frankfurt, London, Palermo, Mainz, Lausanne, Naples, Leiden and Venice as well as many others. 

Professors and lecturers of the school are regular participants in large international research projects and scientific conferences.
