News from Fulbright Scholar Simona Gradinaru

Fulbright Visiting Scholar Simona Gradinaru gave a lecture within the course “Concepts and Issues in Planning and Development” offered by School of Planning, Design & Construction at Michigan State University. Her talk started with a brief introduction to the Romanian spatial planning system. It continued with a presentation of her Fulbright project research results on methods to analyze the long-term effect of national policies on trends and patterns of built-up development. After the lecture, she had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with a former Fulbright scholar from Kenya.

“Campus Life” Presentation @FEAC-EducationUSA

On December 12, the EducationUSA-affiliated Fulbright Educational Advising Center hosted a talk on campus life, in which our guest speakers were U.S. undergraduate students Sarah Hickman (Middle Tennessee State University) and Andrew Tuider (University of Illinois at Chicago), currently interning at the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, and our very own Fulbright English Teaching Assistant James Wilson, a graduate of Southern Methodist University.
Our guests addressed a variety of topics, ranging from the liberal arts model to the myriad activities and clubs on offer in a U.S. campus. Participants in the event, mainly Romanian high school students and undergraduates, were happy to learn more about the U.S. education system and campus life, as well as about U.S. culture in general, and had a lot of questions. While the high schoolers were more interested in the application process and tips on what would make them competitive applicants to a U.S. university, Romanian undergraduate students were keen to explore differences between the U.S. and European higher education system and happy to answer, in turn, their U.S. peers’ questions. The resulting conversation was highly engaging and informative for all parties.
Many thanks to Sarah, Andrew and James for kindly agreeing to participate in this event!

A New Media Crisis at the Turn of the Century

U.S. Fulbright Scholar Monica Cure, soon to release her new volume, Picturing the Postcard: A New Media Crisis at the Turn of the Century, made a presentation of the book at the Faculty of Television and Theater of Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj on December 10.

During the presentation, Monica argued that “new media” is as much a discursive object as a material one, and that it is always in dialogue with the media that came before it.
