Three Dyson faculty members will participate in prestigious Fulbright-sponsored programs in 2023.

Through the US Fulbright Program, Professor of History Nancy Reagin, PhD, will spend the 2023-2024 academic year in Iaşi, Romania. Reagin’s research through the program will examine gender in fascist movements in a transnational context. Romania’s Iron Guard, which had close connections to Germany’s National Socialists, is among the most important fascist movements in interwar Europe.

In addition to her research, Reagin will teach a history course and a gender studies course, as well as consult on curriculum, at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, the oldest university in Romania. Reagin was granted Pace University’s President’s Award for Scholarly Leave to pursue her work through the Fulbright program.

Associate Professor of Communication and Media Studies SeongJae Min, PhD, has also received a Fulbright Award for 2023-24 to research and teach in South Korea.

Min’s project, entitled “Practicing Alternative Journalism to Bridge Political Divides,” will involve studying journalism practices intended to reduce political polarization, specifically how citizen-produced and public-oriented journalism can encourage democratic attitudes in Korea.

In addition to conducting research, Min will consult on curriculum at Hanyang University, teach Intro to Journalism and Citizen Journalism courses, and explore collaboration opportunities between Pace and Hanyang.

Associate Professor of Economics Anna Shostya, PhD—who is known for innovative courses at Pace, including an interdisciplinary course that combines photography and economics—will spend three weeks at American University of Moldova this spring, serving as a Fulbright Specialist.

Through her project “Pedagogy, Curriculum Transformation, and Global Challenges,” Shostya will share her expertise in innovative teaching practices to aid in a transformation of the University’s business and economics sciences curricula. With a particular focus on promoting undergraduate research experiences, Shostya will help develop a culture of experiential learning at the University.
