Fulbright Grantees Attending the New Bilateral Agreement Ceremony
Alexandra Manea, Fulbright Student Researcher, and Florin Priboi, Hubert H. Humphrey grantee in the academic year 2013-14, attended the signing ceremony for the new bilateral agreement between the Governments of U.S. and Romania for joint funding of the Fulbright Program. The event took place in Washington DC on October 22. The document was signed by the Romanian Minister of Education Remus Pricopie (Fulbright Alumnus) and the Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Evan M. Ryan.
Both Alexandra and Florin have been extremely honored to take part in the event and have considered this moment a real privilege to be remembered for a lifetime. “Being there was really touching” says Alexandra. “It has been a chance for us to understand once more how important it is to be part of the Fulbright program and represent your country at this level.”
Collaboration between Romanian and U.S. Fulbright Alumni
Romanian poet and performer Chris Tanasescu (Margento) and American poet and translator Martin Woodside, both Fulbright alumni, worked together on the translation of Gellu Naum’s poetry, recently published in the volume Athanor & Other Pohems by Calypso Editions, an artist-run, nonprofit press dedicated to publishing quality literature in translation by established and emerging authors.
About the book: “One of Romania’s most important poets and a key figure in the surrealist movement, Gellu Naum remains almost entirely unknown to English speaking audiences. Sampling some of Naum’s best work from a unique literary career spanning over more than 60 years, this collection offers a long overdue introduction to one of the greatest figures in 20th century European poetry.”
