Member Bio

Anna Mazanik graduated from Moscow State University and received her MA in History from Central European University in Budapest. In 2009 she joined the PhD program at CEU with a project "Hygiene, Public Health, and Urban Environment in Late-Imperial Moscow" that explores how the institutionalization of hygiene and the public health campaigns affected the management of wastes, the use of natural resources, human-animal relations and the understanding of pollution in the time of bacteriological discoveries and rapid industrialization. In 2012 Anna was a visiting fellow at the Institute of the History of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, and at TU Darmstadt in 2013.
