I completed my PhD in Comparative History at the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. I hold Masters degrees in Russian Studies (Eötvös Loránd University) and in Central European History (Central European University). My research has been supported by various fellowships and grants around the world. I was awarded the Reese Miller International Exchange Scholarship by the Telluride Association and a place in the Provost’s International Research Internship Program to carry out research at Cornell University in the USA. My last year of doctoral studies was spent at the Institute of European History in Mainz and at Trinity Hall at the University of Cambridge.
My main research interest is Russian and European intellectual history. My dissertation, “Orthodox Political Theologies: Clergy, Intelligentsia and Social Christianity in Revolutionary Russia” reconstructed the intellectual history of the Orthodox Left during the hectic revolutionary years in late Imperial Russia and restored the historical intelligibility of failed social Christian projects by interpreting them in the framework of Orthodox political theologies. The research contributed to the study of comparative history, global intellectual history and secularism studies. My research will be published as a book chapter in a forthcoming volume titled Religion and the Russian Revolution by Indiana University Press. I am also interested in methodological questions of the history of global political thought. I coordinated two successful workshops at the Central European University that promoted research on non-Western intellectual contexts with the participation of an interdisciplinary group of scholars.
