At first skeptical about my chosen path to venture to Poland, I quickly adapted and grew within a very different culture. I made lifelong friends, learned a new language, and traveled to some amazing places.
Receiving a Fulbright Research Fellowship to conduct my fieldwork in Poland had a profound impact on my professional and personal life, and continues to today.
Academically, culturally and historically this truly was an experience of a liftetime.
The opportunity to teach and collaborate with colleagues at Warsaw University in Spring semester 2013 as Distinguished Fulbright Chair of Slavic Studies was gratifying and worthwhile for a number of reasons.
Being a Fulbright scholar to Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań is one of the highlights of my academic career.
