"All history is contemporary history”.  This dictum is true in the sense that the work of the historian is not only to preserve past events from oblivion, but also to understand the past and to use this knowledge to understand our own world.

In order to deal with this challenge, the Department of General History strives to provide a comprehensive programme, not only in terms not only of geographical areas (European history, American history, Russian history and Global history) but also of historical periods and questions we ask about the past. Faculty members’ academic specialisations include military and diplomatic history, intellectual history, gender, cultural history, economic and social history, the history of nationalism, imperialism and colonialism, and comparative history.
