GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College announces the addition of Sheila Nowinski, Ph.D., as assistant professor of history. Nowinski was most recently an assistant professor of history at Siena Heights University in Adrian, Mich.
She received her Ph.D. (2012) and M.A. (2008) in history from the University of Notre Dame. She also studied at Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium in 2003 after getting her B.A. from Boston College.
Nowinski is a historian of France and Europe with a focus on religion and social change. Her courses emphasize the connections between the peoples of Europe and the rest of the world through imperial conquest and immigration.
“The history department is excited to welcome Sheila Nowinski. She brings not only expertise in European history, but the ability to teach Middle Eastern history,” Professor of History, Core Curriculum Coordinator and Chair of the History Department David Buck, Ph.D., said. “She is energetic and willing to help students in research, and we look forward to her contributions to the Thiel College academic community.”
Her article “French Catholic Activism in Algeria between Colonization and Development, 1930-65” was published in the journal French History in 2013. The online journal includes articles covering a wide range of enquiry across the arts and social sciences, as well as across historical periods, and book reviews. The journal provides a broad perspective on contemporary debates from an international range of scholars, and covers the entire chronological range of French history from the early Middle Ages to the 20th century.
First-year student orientation is Friday and classes start Monday.
