PhotoDr. Philip Hnatkovich

International education has been at the forefront of Philip’s work for a long time. Prior to joining CGE in 2017, Philip studied at West Virginia University (MA) and Penn State University (PhD), where he researched early modern histories of maritime trade, migration, and refugeeism. Those topics led him to years of rewarding study in port towns on both sides of the Atlantic. While completing his degrees, he taught courses ranging from the history of pre-modern Europe to fascism in the twentieth century; he also co-founded MarineLives, an international nonprofit that delivers digital education programs in public history. At CGE, Philip manages education abroad programs for students.
