Presentation of Research in Timisoara

Jenny Keroack, U.S. Fulbright Student Researcher in the field of Public Health at Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, has continued her series of presentations, this time for students in Timisoara:

“Presenting my research on the anti-vaccine movement in Romania to fellow Fulbrighter Natalie Davis’ masters student class was a lovely experience. Even though this is their last class of the year, the students were really engaged and asked great questions. This is clearly a great group and I’m excited to hear what they do after graduation. And if it’s something involving network science, I hope they’ll reach out to me and that I’ll be able to help.”

News from Fulbright Scholar Oana Godeanu-Kenworthy

Part of the U.S. Embassy’s outreach events in March, during Women’s Month, Oana Godeanu-Kenworthy, currently Fulbright visiting scholar at the University of Bucharest, met with students from the I. L. Caragiale High-School in Bucharest (March 6), and, via DVC, spoke to high-schoolers in Bacau and Baia Mare (March 26 and 27) at the American Corner at the National Library in Bucharest. The topic of Dr. Godeanu-Kenworthy's lectures was “Influential Women who Changed American History", followed by an interactive section. The high-schoolers enthusiastically brainstormed what type of events, monuments, and actors would best help local communities to learn about, and celebrate, the women who made an impact on Romanian history, and together came up with creative ways to enhance the overall visibility of women in the Romanian national narrative.
