I have shared my research findings on cultural globalization during my Fulbright year to London in the 2019 Fulbright Talk at the Fulbright National Conference.
The arts can lead to positive global changes in many areas. The Fulbright Spirit of mutual understanding is enhanced by theatre. When history is held hostage by politics and when human rights are violated, story-telling helps restore dignity to what it means to be human. When William Shakespeare’s plays move through different cultures, they reveal unexamined assumptions about human nature and tell surprising stories about globalization.
