PhD in History
Center for Study of Common Problems of Contemporary East
Born in 1944, Sergei Panarin graduated from Moscow State University as a historian in 1974 and de-fended his thesis for the degree of candidate in history in 1982. In 1979, he was admitted to the Institute of Oriental Studies, where he is now continuing to work.
He started his carrier at the Institute as a specialist in peasant studies. After 1991, he switched to a research on the post-Soviet nationalisms, ethnic conflicts and migration in the states of Central Asia and in Buriatia. His current research interests are not strictly limited: he engages into collective multi-disciplinary projects aimed at addressing complicated social and political problems of the contemporary East within their historical framework and cultural context and in the comparison with the experience of other large cultural worlds such as Russia or Europe. The same applies to his recently launched project on the comparative study of historical and contemporary migrations.
In 1992 – 2001, he was the member of Common Security Forum – an independent interna-tional group of academics and policymakers from Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. He was also a faculty resource in the proceedings of three-years-long International Scientific-Educational Seminar “Central Asia in International Relations: Interdisciplinary Approach in Developing Teaching and Academic Excellence” (2003– 2006).
In 2002, he established a School of Younger Authors for students, post-graduates and young lecturers from Russian universities; up to date, over 50 schools were conducted in different cities of Russia, and the total number of those who graduated from this extra-faculties short-term course of academic writing is now amounting to more than one thousand.
In 1995 – 2008, he was editor of multi-disciplinary academic journal “Vestnik Yevraziyi / Acta Eurasica”. He was also a member of the editorial panel for another academic journal “Inner Asia” (Cambridge, UK) in 2002 – 2015, and since 2016 he is a member of the same panel for Russian academic journal of critical articles and reviews “Istoricheskaia ekspertiza” (Historical Expertise)
His list of publications in Russian and Western books and journals includes around 200 items.
