You and your research (brief description)
Catherine Evtuhov has been teaching in the History Department at Georgetown since 1992. Her interests lie at the intersection of ideas, culture, and society in Russia, ranging broadly over the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. She has published the first translation of Russian philosopher Sergei Bulgakovís Philosophy of Economy: The World as Household (1912; Yale UP, 2000), a work of social theory based deeply on the relation of human beings and nature; and her most recent book, Portrait of a Russian Province: Economy, Society, and Civilization in Nineteenth-Century Nizhnii Novgorod (U of Pittsburgh Press, 2011), delves into the ecology of ravines, rivers, and forests, and contemporary scientific thinking about them. At present, Dr. Evtuhov is involved in an international collaborative project, with colleagues from the US, UK, and Russia, seeking to establish and broaden the field of Russian environmental history.
