Professor Adina Ciugureanu at Columbia University

Professor Adina Ciugureanu, “Ovidus” University, Constanta is the recipient of the second Fulbright grant in 2017, at the University of California Santa Barbara. In this capacity, she held a conference on Ovid, the Latin poet, whose death, 2000 years ago, is commemorated this year, at Columbia University, New York and Arkansas State University-Beebe, as part of the OLF program. Her lecture, entitled, “The Legacy of Ovid, the Latin poet, on the Black Sea Region” was concerned with Ovid’s poetry written during his exile at Tomis and with its influence on the literature of the region, in general and on Romanian literature and culture, in particular. The talk was meant to familiarize the American students with the Latin roots of the Romanian language and with the 19th century Romanian reading of Ovid’s exilic poems in the larger context of Eastern Europe history and culture.

Final Meeting of the 2016–2017 U.S. Fulbright Grantees

The Final Meeting of the Year for the American Fulbright grantees present in Romania in 2016-2017 was hosted by Transilvania University of Brasov on May 15 and 16. The almost twenty U.S. Fulbright Senior Scholars, Students and ETA’s who are now in Romania came to Brasov from Bucharest, Cluj, Craiova, Timisoara, Iasi, Constanta, Baia Mare and Oradea. They presented at the Multicultural Center of Transilvania University their teaching and research activities, as well as a remarkable series of events in which they were part or actually organized, including participation in conferences, writing of articles and volunteering work.

Once again this year, Fulbright grantees reached an impressive variety of places and environments, from big cities and universities to isolated villages, an intense exchange of knowledge, ideas and feelings taking place among the American professors and students and a very diverse Romanian public.

The Fulbright grantees, as well as this outstanding generous and intense Program, deserve all our gratitude.
