MHS Hosts Fulbright Fellow
In late August the MHS welcomed Prof. Svetlana Korotkova from the Department of World and Russian History of the Russian State University—Higher School of Economics in Moscow. Professor Korotkova, a Fulbright Fellow studying the role of women in colonial America, will be visiting the Society until the end of December. She is the third Fulbright scholar the Society has hosted since 2004; all three are from Moscow. In 2004-2005, Andrey Isserov, then a Ph.D. candidate in history at Moscow State University, conducted research in U.S.-Russian diplomatic relations in the 1820s; during the fall of 2007, Prof. Natalia Suchugova of the Foreign Languages Department of the Russian State University for the Humanities studied Russian-American diplomatic relations in the early 19th century.
Prof. Korotkova will give a Brown Bag presentation on her research on a date to be determined later this fall. Please check the MHS online calendar periodically for more information.
