Chair: Kate Copeland

Panel: Michael Barnes, Anya Dikareva and Endi Poskovic


In this panel, Fulbright recipients will discuss their experiences undertaking printmaking-related Fulbright grants.  Panelists will summarize their experiences, share images, discuss creative impact, and address the ways that printmaking helped them meet the Fulbright goal "to increase mutual understanding between people of the U.S. and people of other countries through people-to-people exchange."  Endi Poskovic will speak about his Fulbright Senior Research Fellowship in Poland and throughout Europe, Anya Dikareva will discuss her Fulbright U.S. Student Fellowship to Slovakia, Michael Barnes will share his experience in Serbia on a Fulbright Specialist Fellowship, and Kate Copeland will discuss her Fulbright Scholar Fellowship in India.  The panel will include a conversation about the application process, with tips for those interested in applying to Fulbrights in the future, and conclude with a Q&A session.
