Dr. Tony Magagna, assistant professor of English and faculty member since 2009, has been awarded a Fulbright Lectureship in American studies. Magagna will be a lecturer at the University of Potsdam, Germany, during the 2012-13 academic year.
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, offering opportunities for U.S. faculty members and professors to conduct research, lecture and/or consult with other scholars and institutions abroad.
Magagna becomes the second faculty member in two years to be honored with a Fulbright position. Dr. David Jervis, associate professor of political science, was named a Fulbright Scholar in international politics at Marie Curie Skladowska University in Lublin, Poland, last year.
"This is an opportunity that I have always been interested in because of the intriguing aspect of how other people think of American literature," Magagna says. "Millikin faculty members are focused on teaching and innovation, and the culture of the university makes faculty members strong candidates for the Fulbright Program."
