Ost is guest at conference

David Ost, professor of political science, was a featured guest at the recent national conference of the Association for the Study of Nationalities, held at Columbia University in New York.

The conference had a special panel on his 2006 book, “The Defeat of Solidarity,” which deals with society in the post-Communist era in Poland.

In March, he was a keynote speaker at a conference on Trade Unions in Central and Eastern Europe, at the Free University of Brussels in Belgium.

Ost, a member of the faculty since 1986, holds a bachelor's degree from SUNY Stony Brook and his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin.
