ASC Alums Work and Research in Vienna

It’s been a bit quiet on the blog lately, mainly due to the fact that I’m on research leave to complete my book on Tourism and Austrian national identity. But this morning I came across a photo on twitter that I can’t ignore, because it shows two of Agnes Scott alums program as part of the Fulbright Austria Program in Vienna (look for the red circles in the photo):

The one on the left is Molly Roza, who graduated in 2009, went to Vienna on a Fulbright to research the history of Austrian women during the postwar period, and then stayed to become Fulbright Austria’s “US Student Program Officer.” A few years ago I visited Molly in Vienna and we produced a short interview about her experience:

On the right, a bit hidden, you see Katherine Robinson, who graduated in May 2014 and won a Fulbright award to Vienna to teach English and research the oeuvre of Austrian film director Ulrich Seidel. Not in the picture (even though I previously claimed so in a tweet) is Christine Laurie Gugliemino, who has attended Agnes Scott College before transferring to the U of Tennessee – Chattanooga, where she recently was awarded a Fulbright for a teaching position in Bludenz, Vorarlberg.

Not there on a Fulbright, but in Austria nonetheless, is Molly Saunders, whose experience as Au Pair and European traveller par excellence you can follow on her excellent blog. It looks as if Austria is Scottie-territory, so current students, take notice and keep Fulbright in mind as you approach your senior year!
