Workshop on Professional Development in Sibiu

Fulbright ETA Sarah D’Antoni visited "Lucian Blaga" University of Sibiu to run a workshop on Professional Development with fellow ETA Matthew Chernick. During the events, Sarah walked undergraduate and graduate students from the Faculty of Letters and Arts through the basics of how to network effectively, write professional email correspondence, and develop resumes for job searches and applications. The workshop was highly interactive, involving active student participation and was well received by the attendees. Also, during her visit, Sarah met with Vice-Dean Eva-Nicoleta Burdusel and Department Head Professor Ovidiu Matiu to discuss various aspects of educational cooperation and exchange within Romania and with the United States. This is a second in a series of “Fulbright Workshops” to prepare students at ULBS for their futures after university, as well as a part of the Commission’s initiative to have U.S. Fulbright grantees meet Romanian students and academic staff outside their host institutions.

Looking at Film as American Art and Culture

Fulbright ETA Matthew Chernick visited Transilvania University of Brasov to present to fellow ETA Stephen Hilger’s American Studies class on Media and Society. The talk was entitled “Looking at Film as American Art and Culture.” The lecture presented an overview of American film history as well as basic vocabulary and skills for discussing cinema in an academic setting. Focus was emphasized on how American movies reflected the times in which they were created and what the future of American cinema might look like today. Students were engaged in a “close viewing” activity and spent time discussing the reflection of Romanian society in their own nation’s cinematic tradition. This visit was undertaken as a part of the Commission’s initiative to have U.S. Fulbright grantees meet Romanian students and academic staff ouside their host institutions.
