Sofiya Grachova received her Ph.D. in History from Harvard University in 2014, focusing on the history of Jewish medical anthropology in Russia in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Her research interests stand at the intersection of science and the history of interethnic relations in Modern Eastern Europe. Most recently, she has embarked upon a project examining the history of racial anthropology in Ukraine. She has held, among others, a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellowship at the European University Institute, a GEOP Postdoctoral Fellowship at the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews (Warsaw), a research fellowship at the German Historical Institute (Warsaw), and a Herzog Ernst Fellowship at the Gotha Research Center of the University of Erfurt. At the Katz Center, she will be finishing her monograph under provisional title “East European Jews, Health, Race & Citizenship, 1830–1930.”
