Guest Alumnus – Wilson Bell
Wilson 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.
“I try to view history as interdisciplinary, bringing in philosophy and literature and anthropology—a variety of ways of looking at the world,” says Bell. “That also comes from the strong liberal arts foundation that King’s provides.”
