Usable Pasts: Applied and Interdisciplinary History Higher School of
Economics, St Petersburg, Russia.
HSE St Petersburg, Department of History, invites domestic and international
applicants to its two-year, English-language MA programme "Usable Pasts:
Applied and Interdisciplinary History." The course gives equal weight to
both history and its uses. The programme offers strong research-led teaching
that draws on the Department's strength in global, comparative and
transnational history, including studies of empires and nationalism,
socialism, post-socialism and post-colonialism, environmental and economic
history and anthropology, history of science and technology, and the
anthropology of memory. Students benefit from interdisciplinary grounding in
methods of historical research and textual criticism, cultural heritage and
museum studies, anthropology, historical geography and geoinformation
systems, digital humanities, oral history and visual methods.
We encourage strong applicants with undergraduate degrees in history and
other fields of the humanities, including history of art, literary
criticism, modern and medieval languages, anthropology, social and political
sciences, economics, law, natural sciences (especially geography and
ecology) and engineering.
This is an English-language MA that provides skills for further academic
study, including PhD, as well as non-academic careers. It includes the
possibility of internships in over fifty St Petersburg museums and options
for Russian language training.
International placement competition runs from 1 February to 1 May 2016
