Mischa Gabowitsch was born in Moscow in 1977. He holds a BA from Oxford University and a PhD in Contemporary History and Area Studies (2007) from the Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales in Paris, where he was also visiting student at the Ecole normale supérieure. He was the first Albert Einstein Fellow at the Einstein Forum and, from 2007 to 2010, a Cotsen Post-Doctoral Fellow and Lecturer in Sociology at Princeton University’s Society of Fellows in Liberal Arts. His doctoral dissertation (written in French) was entitled The Specter of Fascism: Russian Nationalism and Its Opponents, 1987-2007. From 2002 to 2006, he edited a Moscow-based journal entitled Neprikosnovenny zapas: Debates on Politics and Culture. He was the founding editor-in-chief of Laboratorium: Russian Review of Social Research, a peer-reviewed journal published in Russian and English in Saint Petersburg, and remains on its advisory board. He was also a member of the advisory board of kultura, an online periodical on Russian culture published at Bremen University from 2005 to 2009. He is the author of Putin kaputt!? Russlands neue Protestkultur (Berlin: Suhrkamp 2013), the first scholarly monograph on the 2011- Russian protest movement, and the editor of a collection of articles in Russian titled The Memory of the War 60 Years Later: Russia, Germany, Europe (Moscow. NLO 2005). He has also translated two books on Russian nationalism into English, and over 200 academic articles from, or into, Russian, German, French, and English.
