Bio/Research

Claudia Verhoeven is a historian of modern Russia and Europe whose primary research interest is the history of terrorism and related forms of political violence. Her first book, a cultural/micro-history of the 1866 attempted assassination of Tsar Alexander II, was published in 2009: The Odd Man Karakozov: Imperial Russia, Modernity, and the Birth of Terrorism. She is also the co-editor, with Carola Dietze, of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of the History of Terrorism. For her new project, she continues to do research on terrorism, but with a special emphasis on its temporality. Her other interests include the revolutionary tradition; modernism; literature; historiography and historical method; and Russian, German, and European cultural-intellectual history.
