Evguenia Davidova

Ph. D. History, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences

M.A. History, Sofia University


Associate Professor of International Studies and University Studies at Portland State University, teaches courses with a regional focus on Europe.


She specializes in the nineteenth-century Balkan social history. She has recently authored a book, Balkan Transitions to Modernity and Nation-States through the Eyes of Three Generations of Merchants (1780s-1890s), which offers an approach that can be called “mesohistory” – a collective social biography of the Balkan merchants, analyzed against the backdrop of Balkan, Ottoman, and European history.

Dr. Davidova is embarking on a new research project focusing on the Balkan medical knowledge and practices (18th-20th Century).
