Marty Manor Mullins is a research associate with the John Jay Institute. Her research and scholarship focus on East Central European history, politics and urbanity, as well as Soviet history. After completing a year of dissertation research in Slovakia on an Andrew Mellon IIE fellowship, she returned to the University of Washington in Seattle where she graduated with a Ph.D. in History in 2013. Her dissertation, “Slovakia’s Second City in Times of Turbulence: Kosice and its Hungarians, Eastern Rite Catholics and Steelworkers in 1948, 1968, and 1989” focuses on the history of Slovakia’s second-largest city under Communism.
Ms. Mullins’ interest in the region stems from living in the eastern Slovak city of Kosice, where she taught English to Slovak university and high school students from 2000-2002 and again from 2005-2008. While in Slovakia she was an active participant in the Ladislav Hanus Fellowship, a professional fraternity of public service professionals and an organizational partner in the John Jay Institute’s Global Leadership Network.
