Congratulations to current SAIC Fulbright awardees.

Tricia Park, MFA in Writing, ‘19
Host Country: South Korea

For my Fulbright in South Korea, I’m working closely with professors in the fields of English language and literature, contemporary American poetry, ecological literature, translation, cultural anthropology, and Korean language and literature at Sungkyunkwan University, Kangwon National University, and Yonsei University. My research will draw from my experiences as a writer and a Juilliard-trained concert violinist, which examines Korean and Korean American identity and the experience of explicit and implicit bias - as well as invisibility - that East Asians face in the dominant culture. 

Casey Carsel, MFA in Writing, ‘19
Host Country: Ukraine 

I will be staying in Dnipro, Ukraine, on a Fulbright Student Researcher grant in Creative Writing. While there, I will create a series of lyric essays and textile artworks that meditate on how communities carve themselves and their stories into the landscapes that surround them, and how those landscapes might carry the stories forward even when the communities who carved them are gone, thinking specifically about pre-Holocaust shtetls of the region.
