קורות חיים

Dr. Vera Kaplan is a senior lecturer in the Department of History and Director of the Cummings Center for Russian and East European Studies, Tel Aviv University (since 2015). Her research interests lie in the areas of cultural and social history and the history of education in Russia, focusing especially on history as a profession. Her book Historians and Historical Societies in the Public Life of Imperial Russia was published by Indiana University Press in March 2017.

She has written articles and book chapters devoted to the history of the Russian revolution of 1917, including:  “A Dress Rehearsal for Cultural Revolution: Bolshevik Policy towards Teachers and Education between February and October, 1917,” History of Education, Special Issue:  Making Education Soviet, 1917–1953, 35, no. 4-5 ( July–September 2006): 427–452,  “Recent Israeli Historiography of the 1917 Revolution(s),” Journal of Modern Russian History and Historiography, 9, no. 1 (2016):  65-88; and “Historical Societies and the Formation of the Memory on the February Revolution,” (published in Russian: “Istoricheskie obshchestva i formirovanie pamiati o Fevrale v 1917”) in Boris Kolonitskii and  Daniel Orlovskii, eds., Epokha voin i revoliutsii (The Epoch of Wars and Revolutions) (St. Petersburg: Nestor-Istoriia, 2017), 37-49.

מילות מפתח: היסטוריה רוסית, תולדות החינוך, אגודות וולונטריות, היסטוריה כמקצוע

 

אני חוקרת ומלמדת היסטוריה רוסית בהקשר הרחב יותר של היסטוריה אירופאית. המחקר שלי עוסק בהיסטוריה  החברתית והתרבותית של רוסיה בתקופה האימפריאלית ובזמן מהפכת 1917 ששינתה באופן דרמטי את המדינה ואת החברה ברוסיה. אני מתעניינת במיוחד בתולדות החינוך, בפעילות האגודות הוולונטריות ובהיסטוריה כמקצוע. סוגיות אלו נדונו בספר האחרון שלי, Historians and Historical Societies in the Public Life of Imperial Russia, והן מרכזיות גם למחקר הנוכחי שלי, שכותרתו הטנטטיבית הינה "לשרוד את המהפכה". מחקר זה מתמקד בחיי ההיסטוריונים הרוסים לפני, במהלך ולאחר המהפכות של ה-1917. התוצאות הראשוניות של מחקר זה הוצגו במאמר:

“Weathering the Revolution: Patronage as a Strategy of Survival,” Revolutionary Russia, 26, no. 2 (2013): 97–127   

ובפרק מהספר:

Matthias Neumann  and Andrew Willimott (eds.),  Rethinking the Russian Revolution as Historical Divide (London: Routledge, 2018), 186-214.

I study and teach Russian history in the broader context of European history. My research deals with cultural and social aspects of life in Imperial Russia (eighteenth –early twentieth centuries) and with the history of the 1917 Revolution, which so dramatically changed the Russian state and society. I am especially interested in the development of education, of voluntary associations and of history as a profession. These themes were examined in my recent book Historians and Historical Societies in the Public Life of Imperial Russia (2017) and they have remained central for my current project, “Weathering the Revolution,” which explores how historians lived before, during and after the 1917 Revolution and how they responded to the great event of their time. The preliminary results of this research have been presented in “Weathering the Revolution: Patronage as a Strategy of Survival,” Revolutionary Russia, 26, no. 2 (2013): 97–127, and “What Did Historians Do at the Time of the Great Revolution?” in Matthias Neumann and Andrew Willimott (eds.), Rethinking the Russian Revolution as Historical Divide (London: Routledge, 2018), 186-214.
