Duke Welcomes New Fulbright Visiting Scholars

Duke welcomed five new Fulbright visiting scholars from the Philippines, South Korea, China, India and Romania with a reception Tuesday night.

The scholars, who will conduct research on Duke’s campus in the 2016-17 academic year, represent five academic disciplines and will explore topics including interactive media art, food safety regulation and education in South Asia.

Working with Duke faculty members and scholars, they will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

“This program provides American colleges, universities and research institutions with a key resource to support the internationalization of their campuses,” Giovanni Zanalda, director of the Duke University Center for International and Global Studies (DUCIGS), said in his welcome address to the scholars. “Administrators, faculty and students at every level of American education can benefit from the presence of Fulbright Visiting Scholars.”

The scholars were welcomed by deans and university leaders, faculty members, and representatives from the International House, DUCIGS and the Office of Global Affairs.
