Fulbright Finalist

Senior Cicely Hazell to teach English in Turkey

Year Long English
Teaching Assistantship

Cicely Hazell, a senior Art History and French double major with a minor in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies, has been named a Fulbright finalist for an English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) and will spend the 2015-2016 academic year in Turkey.


Hazell chose to travel to Turkey because she is interested in art history and architecture. She also wanted a different travel experience than she has experienced before.


“I look forward to developing lasting relationships and becoming part of the Turkish community,” she said.

Sushi, Samurai
and Anime

A cultural expedition to Japan

From Zen Gardens
To Tenkara Fishing Flies

Its title, “Sushi, Samurai and Anime,” only hints at the journey the students in professor Robin Armstrong’s Sophomore Interdisciplinary Studies (SIS) course have taken to understand the cultural essence of Japan.


Professors Deb Lemke, Sociology, and Susan Scott, Art History, joined Armstrong, a Music professor, in guiding the students’ exploration of how the cultural products — the art, customs, theatre, music and more — of a society reflect its inherent identity. 


The course is a result of a year-long post-doctoral University of Pennsylvania seminar the three professors participated in several years ago.
