Martin Beisswenger is a historian of modern Russian intellectual history. Born in southwest Germany, he received an M.A. in Modern European History from Humboldt University of Berlin in 2001 and a Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame in 2009. Since 2011 he lives in Moscow, where he first taught at Moscow State University and, since 2013, at HSE University, where he is currently an Associate Professor in history. Martin’s main interest is in the intellectual history of the Russian post-revolutionary emigration, especially the so-called Eurasianist movement. In his research he pays particular attention to the intersection of religious, cultural and political views of Russian religious thinkers and émigré intellectuals and studies how their religious beliefs shaped their political ideologies and vice versa.
