The School of Cultural Studies was created in 2015, when the Faculty of Philosophy’s cultural studies division (originally created in 2007) underwent reorganization. The School is unique in its focus on studying contemporary culture and relevant social processes.
The School’s staff is made up of world class scholars and renowned practitioners from various cultural fields, including publishers, magazine editors, columnists, the heads of various cultural projects, and people who are forming an intellectual and cultural landscape for modern Russia.
Main research areas within the School of Cultural Studies include issues in sociocultural identity and cultural continuity in modern society, as well as institutions and mechanisms for transferring cultural memory.
