Mark Bassin’s research focuses on intellectual history in East and Central Europe, primarily Russia and Germany. He is interested in issues of identity, politics and ideologies in the 19th and 20th centuries. With a strong academic background in the field of human geography, he looks particularly at the spatial dimension of identity formation and negotiation. He has done considerable work on the problem of Russia's position between Europe and Asia in Russian cultural history, and also on the vision of Mittellage in German debates about their national destiny in the 20th century.  He has had a special interest in Russian thinking about Siberia, in the past and present, and explores how these different perceptions are connected to broader perspectives on Russian society and politics.
