The European Humanities University continues its collaboration with the Fulbright Program, which provides funding for American scholars to teach and conduct research at universities in other countries.
Next spring, EHU welcomes two Fulbright lecturers. Dr. Lynn Lubamersky, Associate Professor of History at Boise State University will teach at EHU’s History Department; and Dr. Moira O’Keeffe, Assistant Professor of Communication at Bellarmine University, Louisville will teach at the EHU Media Department.
Dr. Lubamersky studied history at the University of California at Berkeley and received her PhD at Indiana University. Her dissertation was entitled Women in Family Politics: The Radziwiłł Family of Zdzięcioł in the History of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth 1733-1763. Her publications include studies of the legal status of women and the history of the family, including several articles on noblewomen's access to political power in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth during the 18th century.
Dr. O’Keeffe studied media, broadcasting, and telecommunications at the New School for Social Research in New York, and at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She received her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. Her dissertation was entitled Media and the Making of Scientists. Dr. O’Keeffe’s research interests include visual communication and film studies, entertainment media, the role of science in popular culture, and digital media.
Last year, EHU hosted Dr. Lincoln Mitchell, Assistant Professor of International Politics at Columbia University as a Fulbright lecturer.
