Growing the Network: Fulbright, Friendships, and Academic Success
This Fulbright Academic Symposium would like to achieve two things: to showcase Fulbrighters’ academic work to date and cultivate an academic and cultural network that can enrich research opportunities trans-disciplinarily across (imagined) boundaries. Everyone has something to contribute, and everyone will find something to build on: it’s just a matter of gathering the conversations and finding the intersections!
Those intersections can be found in our relationships — with people from different cultures, religious persuasions, or political beliefs. Connecting on a personal level deepens these encounters, and more often than not, contribute to the over-all significance of the Fulbright experience. The Fulbright Scholar blogs talk a lot about how relationships provide an unexpected but critical dimension to the academic goals of the Fulbright program. These relationships, in a way, help contribute to a scholar’s academic achievements and fulfilling experience in foreign land. At the same time, this encourages would-be Fulbrighters to link up and provide alternative directions in thought, method, perspective, making the Fulbright network not just about Fulbrighters but about the relationships built in the pursuit of knowledge.
We invite you to join the conversation!
