Professor Tony Novosel is an historian with specialties ranging among the
history of Russia and the Soviet Union, modern European history, the
origins of mass violence in the 20th century, and the conflicts in Northern
Ireland. He is a former steelworker who came to the University of
Pittsburgh as a freshman at the age of 32 and in 2005 earned his Ph.D. in
Soviet History focusing on the Bolshevik Theory of the State. Novosel first
went to Northern Ireland in 1974 and has traveled there regularly since
then. For the past eleven years he has worked with the Business Education
Initiative, a "Peace and Reconciliation" program, in Northern Ireland.
Among many other activities, Novosel recently created a link with Intercomm
Belfast, to provide internship opportunities for students to go to Belfast
for a month to do "peace and reconciliation" work. Do not miss his account
of Irish history on the move.
