About

Bobrovnikov is a historian of borderlands in tsarist and Soviet Russia who specializes in the history of rural non-Christian populations under the colonial and socialist modernization from the late eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. His major field of expertise is Islam in Russia, the Caucasus, as well as the history of Oriental Studies in Europe.

Bobrovnikov studied medieval and modern history as well as Islamic and Oriental Studies at Moscow State University and Institute of Oriental Studies in Moscow. In December 1993 he defended the Ph.D. Dissertation in History and Oriental Studies under the title: Tradition and Modernity in the Mentality of the North African Peasants in the Modern Times (07.00.03, Institute of Oriental Studies) (a monograph was written on its basis and published in Russian in 1998). From 2009 Bobrovnikov directs Caucasus chair at the Central Eurasia Research Center of the Moscow Institute of Oriental Studies. Before coming to HSE in St. Petersburg Bobrovnikov was a fellow at Netherlands Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS - KNAW) in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 2017-2018.

He is currently working on the project, which compares studies of Islamic and customary law, and Muslim legal practices in the borderlands the Russian empire (North Caucasus) with those of its European counterparts in the North Africa and Indonesia between the middle of the nineteenth through the early twenteenth centuries. The project is entitled Deconstructing Sharia Justice in Russia's North Caucasus, 1860s-1920s. Practices, Networks, Actors from the Post-Colonial Perspective. This project questions the hegemonic frameworks of interpretation: the collision between Shari‘a, Islamic and non-Islamic customary law, and the preposition that Russian colonial officers and Muslim legal practitioners were ignorant of what happened in other parts of the colonized world.

Bobrovnikov currently teaches courses on Islamic studies and new imperial history, a BA survey on "Actual Problems in the History of Islamic Studies" and a MA course on the global history of colonial empires including Russia.

He is a member of the European Association for Middle Eastern Studies (EURAMES, London-based, from 2000), CASCADE Caucasus network (Paris-based, from 2016), Society of Russia's Orientologists (Moscow, from 2004), Free Historical Society (from 2014).

He serves on editorial boards of the academic journals: Ethnographic Review (Etnograficheskoe obozrenie); Islamology; Oriens (Vostok); State, Religion, Church in Russia and Worldwide (Gosudarstvo, religiia, tserkov' v Rossii i za rubezhom).
