AboutMy passions include teaching and Slovakia–a strange combination that has afforded me experience teaching at the secondary level in Slovakia and has led me to complete my Ph.D. in East Central European History in order to publish and teach at the university level.
Dr. Manor Mullins earned her Ph.D. at the University of Washington in 2013. A Fulbright Scholar, she conducted research for her dissertation in Kosice, Slovakia, the city where she lived and worked for 7 years. Her published work focuses on the history of Kosice and eastern Slovakia’s experience during the turning points of Czechoslovakia’s postwar history (1948, 1968 and 1989).
