Guest Alumnus – Wilson Bell

Wilson BellWilson Bell, BA(Hons) ’00 is an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy, History, and Politics at Thompson Rivers University. Bell’s interest in history—Russian in particular—stems from lectures in the Foundation Year Program (FYP) at King’s. As an undergraduate, he studied abroad in St. Petersburg. After he completed his master’s, he returned to Russia and taught English at Moscow State University for a year.
