“Our future is not in the stars but in our own minds and hearts.” J. William Fulbright
The Fulbright Association’s 42nd Annual Conference and Advocacy Day, will be held from October 24-26, 2019 at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel. This year’s conference seeks to highlight collaborative initiatives and research aimed at improving lives and forming communities. It also hopes to emphasize the essential role of public diplomacy in building a better world.
The Fulbright Program may be a flagship program for U.S. public diplomacy, but the empiricism on its execution and impact, here and abroad, is often anecdotal. We want to complement powerful Fulbright stories—which we welcome to this conference—with rigorous frameworks for analysis and data-rich evidence. We invite proposals from researchers at all levels, who need not be Fulbright alumni, to share their findings on public diplomacy, broadly defined and not limited to the Fulbright Program.
