Fulbright to Wales
I was initially invited to attend a Fulbright International Colloquium entitled Communication, Health and the Elderly organized by Nikolas Coupland, Howard Giles and John Wiemann held at the University of Wales conference centre, Gregynog Hall, Newtown, Mid Wales, UK in 1988. While at the conference, I engaged the three organizers, each of whom had experience with international scholarship through the Fulbright Association, in the possibility of being awarded a Fulbright research award to study the interpersonal behavior of older adults living independently and well as dependently in the UK. I wrote my Fulbright application with the help of former Fulbrighters Robert Norton and John Wiemann. Nik Coupland, a Professor within the Centre for Applied English Language Studies (now the Center for Language and Communication Research) within Cardiff University, Wales, UK., “sponsored” my research application with the promise of an office, faculty residence, and various appointments at Cardiff University. The faculty within my home department at the University of Oklahoma and the administration within the College of Arts and Sciences supported my extended visit to Cardiff.
