International Conference “Embracing Linguistic and Cultural Diversity Through English”

Fulbright Senior Grantee Professor Monica Cure and Junior Grantee English Teaching Assistants Matthew Chernick, Courtney-Sophia Henry, and Mariah Ligas attended the International Cross-Borders Conference “Embracing Linguistic and Cultural Diversity through English” at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University in Iasi, Romania and Yuri Fedkovych University in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. This innovative binational conference was a collaboration between the English departments at both universities, and was the first international conference of its kind at Yuri Fedkovych University. Papers were presented on a variety of English language, literature, and teaching topics and the participants enjoyed building relationships between Romanian, Ukrainian, American, European, and international academic communities, as well as the fantastic hospitality in both cities. The conference as a whole strengthened ties between the Romanian and Ukrainian universities and an ongoing collaboration is expected. The Romanian Fulbright Commission generously supported the participation of the Fulbright grantees.

Yale University Rep Connects with Romanian Students at FEAC

On Friday, October 20, the EdUSA-affiliated Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC) hosted a Yale information session, for the benefit of Romanian students.
Hannah Mendlowitz, Senior Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions, provided the attendees with comprehensive information on academic programs, campus life, admissions, and financial aid.
30 Romanian high school students, mainly 10th and 11th graders from some of the finest schools in Bucharest, as well as other cities, took part in the event, eager to learn more about the admission process, and took ample advantage of the Q & A session to ask questions on topics ranging from extracurricular activities to campus culture and living arrangements.
Since some of the attendees were for the first time at FEAC-EducationUSA, the FEAC adviser took this opportunity to tell them about the resources and services we provide to help them throughout the application process.

Fulbright Participation in the Astra Film Festival in Sibiu

Dr. Rebekah Jorgensen, Fulbright professor of documentary at U.N.A.T.C., attended the Astra Documentary Film Festival in Sibiu, October 16 to 22, 2017, where her Masters students spent the week learning about new approaches, marketing and distribution of documentary projects.

Besides viewing many of the excellent documentaries, both in and out of competition, Rebekah had the opportunity to interview Festival Founder and Director Dumitru Budrala and Artistic Director Csilla Cato about the evolution of documentaries in Romania and festival interest. Razvan Crisu Manea, Director of the "Video Bar", explained the innovative approach to maximizing attendees' ability to view additional films outside of screening. Two highlights were the meeting of the film team, archaeologists and the Romanian head prosecutor at the screening of "The Hunt for Transylvanian Gold" about the Dacian Gold scandals, and a Norwegian animated documentary, "The Man Who Knew 75 Languages", which explored the relationship of linguist Georg Sauerwein with Romanian Queen Elisabeta/Carmen Sylva (including his visit to her at Peles castle), and which was introduced by her great-nephew, Nicolae de Roumanie.
