Fulbright to Malaysia/Fulbright Senior Specialist to India
Having a Fulbright Fellowship has been a great experience, meeting and working along with colleagues at their universities. I had a Fulbright to Malaysia at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) in Shah Alam for six months in 2008-09. I ended up giving lectures to faculty on qualitative research methods and taught one graduate class on media and culture. I was able to work with colleagues on on-going research projects and have been back to the region a couple more times.
My first Fulbright was made possible by a former graduate student who had become Chair of his Department and wrote a letter on my behalf. This was a Fulbright Senior Specialist to lecture on intercultural communication at Punjabi University, India, 2003. The Senior Specialist awards are only up to six weeks. I wish I would have had a longer stay there.
