CLAS Faculty Member uses Fulbright Grant for Teaching, Research

Mark Thurner, an associate professor of history and anthropology, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grants to study and conduct research overseas this year. Currently in Peru researching the country’s museums, he will also lead a graduate seminar at Lima’s San Marcos University on history and memory.

Thurner is one of three University of Florida recipients of about 800 U.S. faculty and professionals that the Fulbright Program sends to universities around the world. The program also makes it possible for about 800 international faculty and professionals to study in American universities and contribute to U.S. research projects.

“The Fulbright scholars program has never been more relevant to the University of Florida,” UF Provost Joseph Glover said. “Participants in the program provide us with a remarkably enhanced global perspective that strengthens our ability to do research and teach on this campus.”

In addition to sending three scholars abroad, UF is hosting six Fulbright scholars from other countries, five of whom are serving within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences:
