The Fulbright Commission Hosted the 9th edition of the American Studies Student Conference

On May 30, the Fulbright Commission had the pleasure of hosting the 9th edition of the American Studies student conference, titled “Reality and Imagination in Telling the Story of America.” Initiated by the American Studies program at the University of Bucharest in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy, the series of student conference began in 2006 and for the past four years, the Fulbright Commission has been the host of the event. This year, the conference brought together undergraduate as well as graduate students presenting papers on topics pertaining to race & ethnicity studies, journalism and political studies, as well as popular culture and film studies. The opening remarks were delivered by Octavian Roske, head of the English Department, University of Bucharest, Scott A. Reese, Cultural Attaché, U.S. Embassy, and Mihai Moroiu, American program director at the Fulbright Commission. The keynote speech, given by Mr. Scott Reese, examined the difference between reality and imagination as reflected in the larger sphere of American history and culture, touching on a multitude of aspects and examples from the current political & social environment. The conference concluded with the remarks made by Maria Sabina Draga Alexandru, professor of American literature and main organizer of this year’s edition of the American Studies student conference.
