Romanian Fulbright Alumnus to Launch New Book
Dr. Vasile Rotaru will launch his book titled “Between Integration and Intervention. Russia and the European ‘Near Abroad’ after 2009” on Thursday, March 2nd, at the “Carol I” Central University Library. On this occasion, several celebrated professors from the University of Bucharest and the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration/SNSPA (Dr. Rotaru’s home university) will join for a dialogue on the topic proposed by the book, together with the author. Dr. Vasile Rotaru was the recipient of a Fulbright (Senior) Visiting Scholar Award in International Relations at Georgetown University, back in 2015. As he says, he wouldn’t have been able to complete this book without a Senior Fulbright grant which allowed him to conduct specific research in the field. We would like to congratulate Dr. Rotaru for his book and wish him the best of luck in his academic career!

4.48 PsychosisSaturday, January 28, was the second European opening night of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis. The show was directed by Fulbright Scholar Rick St. Peter for his students at the theatre department of the University of Craiova. Quoting Rick, “It has been an amazing experience for me to be able to do this here!”
4.48 Psychosis was the astonishing final work of the radical British playwright Sarah Kane, first performed posthumously in 2000. Detailing the experience of clinical depression, the play harrowingly reveals, through poetry, anger and dark humour, an individual’s struggle to come to terms with their own psychosis, the numbers in the title referring to the time in the early morning when clarity and bleak despair strike together.

The beautiful volume has been released by Brumar Publishing House, while the translation into Romanian was made by Rareș Moldovan.
