Black History Month Event @FEAC-EdUSA Featuring U.S. Fulbrighter Jasmine Mangrum

On Wednesday, February 21, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center marked Black History Month by hosting a special event: a screening of the 2014 Oscar-nominated feature „Selma”, which recreates a seminal moment in Black Americans’ struggle for equal rights – the Martin Luther King-led march from Selma to Montgomery -, followed by a discussion on the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. Our guest speaker for this event was U.S. Fulbright Grantee Jasmine Mangrum (University of Iowa).
Jasmine shared her personal perspective, as a Black American growing up in Iowa, on the Civil Rights Movement, both as a well-defined moment in U.S. history, as well as in terms of its relevance to contemporary U.S. society.
Participants in the event, mainly Romanian undergrads and graduate students, eagerly joined in the discussion, asking questions on topics ranging from more effective ways of confronting and integrating traumatic moments in history to versions and subsets of Black American identity, as well as shifts in the representation of Black Americans in popular culture and the “Black Panther” phenomenon.
Many thanks to Jasmine Mangrum for agreeing to join us for this event!

Courtney-Sophia Henry Visits School in Timișoara

On January 29, 2018, Fulbright ETA Courtney-Sophia Henry visited Școala Gimnaziala nr. 12 in Timișoara, at the invitation of one of her American Studies Masters class students, who is also a teacher at the school. Ms. Henry spoke to a group of students, aged 9 to 14 years, as well as teachers who will soon begin their own travels as part of the Erasmus program, all of whom are studying English and wish to improve their listening/receptive skills. Ms. Henry spoke about her experiences as a K-12 teacher in the United States (notably in Washington D.C., Camden, New Jersey, and Detroit, Michigan), as well as various aspects of American culture. Participants came prepared with their own questions for Ms. Henry, and were quite interested to learn more about her experiences adapting to Romanian culture. Food, music, education, movies, and more were discussed at length.
