"Looking for Home"

The second representation of the play "Looking for Home", directed by Fulbright Scholar Domnica Rădulescu and starring BA & MA students within the American Studies Program at the University of Bucharest, will take place on Wednesday, December 20, from 18:30, at the National University of Theatre and Film "I.L. Caragiale", room Ileana Berlogea.

The play consists in a collage of scenes from works by Caryl Churchill, Domnica Rădulescu, Saviana Stănescu, Heather Raffo and Aglaja Veteranyi, all revolving around the themes of home/homelessness, exile and belonging, ever more topical in the context of the current refugee crisis.

Encountering the Other in American Literature

Dr. Monica Cure, a current Fulbright scholar at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University in Iasi, gave a talk at the Leucorea in Wittenberg, Germany, as an invited guest of the Muhlenberg Center of American Studies at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. Her talk, “Encountering the Other in American Literature and in the Classroom: The Pedagogical Value of Travel Texts,” was part of the center’s annual teacher training program, co-sponsored by the U.S. Embassy Berlin and the Consulate General Leipzig. This program has a rich history, originally funded by the Marshall plan before the reunification of Germany. After the fall of the Berlin wall, it helped strengthen relationships between teachers of English from both sides and provide much needed support especially for teachers from East Germany. “I found the event extremely enjoyable and encouraging – these are teachers who are working so hard to facilitate the intercultural understanding of the next generation. It was an honor to be invited to speak in Wittenberg, especially as it happened to be the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation.”
