Mochoruk named Baukol Fellow

The next recipient of the Bard and Nicki Baukol History Fellow is James Mochoruk of the University of North Dakota’s Department of History. Dr. Mochoruk is an expert in Canada’s northern development and in the social, labor, and political history of the Canadian west.

He received the Bard and Nicki Baukol Fellow position to support his new project, The Human Factor: Canadian Communism in the 20th Century. This project seeks to revise our understanding of Communism in Canada by relying upon sources that have only recently become available to researchers. His work will move beyond the traditional and dated party history of Communism in Canada by examining it within a social, gender, ethnic and transnational context.

Nicki and Bard Baukol generously established the Bard and Nicki Baukol History Fellow to support the professional development of members of UND’s Department of History.
