Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant

fulbrightI have been selected for a a 2014-2015 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant to the Netherlands. My project is ‘Research and Teaching in/as Cultural-Linguistic Contact Zones’. I will be working with Professor Mariette de Haan, Endowed Chair in Intercultural Education at Universiteit Utrecht. We will collaborate on a research project on a parenting program for Moroccan immigrants that was developed by a Dutch Moroccan community organization. I will build on this project with a study that focuses on how program participants support their children’s school success and language and literacy development and learn new ways to do so. Professor de Haan and I will also co-teach a course on education, youth, and international aid.
