Camilla Pletuhina-Tonev


Hello! My name is Camilla and I am from Ceadir Lunga, Moldova. I am a historian of the Ottoman Empire and Eastern Europe. My research focuses on tracing the altering narratives on Christian Orthodoxy and the methods of enforcing orthopraxy in a trans-imperial Eurasian setting in the 17th and 18th centuries. Before joining Princeton, I lived and studied in six countries. I completed my undergraduate degree in History at Anadolu University in Turkey and my Master's in Comparative History at Central European University in Austria.

My natural habitat comprises the gym and the Firestone Library. Also, I can often be spotted frequenting coffee shops on and off campus, probably getting my fifth cup of coffee for the day. If you asked me about a unique skill I possess, I would say I have much experience moving around the world and getting accustomed to new languages, cultures, communities, and academic traditions.
