Working with a fabulous global editorial team and a great group of contributors, we are very pleased to announce the launch of the Fulbright Chronicles.
This independent, on-line, peer-reviewed journal by and for Fulbright alumni explores how the Fulbright experience shapes our lives, shifts the arc of our career trajectories, develops novel approaches to collaboration, engenders innovative means of creative expression, and establishes new pathways of knowledge.
Highlights of the inaugural issue include a commentary by former Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar on “Why the Fulbright Program Really Matters” and an essay by Pultizer-prize winning author Jane Smiley on how being a Fulbrighter in Iceland shifted her career aspirations. There is also an article by MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellow Derek Peterson describing the ways in which his Fulbright experience in the early 1990s shaped his scholarly vocation on the politics of African identity.
The Chronicles grew out of our Fulbright experiences in Thailand and a shared sense that the long-term impact of these experiences was an untold story. Introduced to each other in 2007 by then Executive Director of the Thai Fulbright Program, Pornthip Kanjaniyot, in 2014 we were asked to co-edit the English version of a Thai-English volume marking the 60th anniversary of the the Thai Fulbright Program. In recent years, we discussed that there was an opportunity to explore more broadly how Fulbrighters “see the world” and what they do with those insights.
We are so grateful to the Chronicles editorial team and initial contributors who helped launch us all on this remarkable journey. We cordially invite you to join us. You can learn more about our global editorial team and their Fulbright experiences or how to contribute an article or commentary at: www.fulbright-chronicles.com.
