A project, involving six persons, concerns historical lessons of Communist and Nazi history, from a genealogical perspective. At present, one research project, on the thirty years' war of the 20th century and its historical lessons, has just been finalized, as has another one on problems of history teaching at the university, and a third, on historical jubilees. I have written a small book on genocide. A long-term project, which will result in a multi-volume work, focuses on global history. Another long-term project is to write the genealogical history of post-Communist Russia, focusing on the history used by Russian collectives for orientating and sense-making purposes in the eras of Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin.
