I am a historian of Eastern Europe and Ukraine. I research and write about the effects of famine in Soviet Ukraine in the 1930s and 1940s. In addition to my scholarly work, I am the founder, and one of the current editors, of H-Ukraine (part of the larger H-Net platform), which is a site dedicated to promoting scholarship related to Ukrainian Studies. When I'm not teaching, traveling, or writing, you can find me hiking in my beloved Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
John Vsetecka is a PhD Candidate in the Department of History at Michigan State University where he is finishing a dissertation that examines the aftermath of the 1932-33 famine in Soviet Ukraine (Holodomor).
