Stanley Karnow to Deliver Keynote Address at 2001 Fulbright Foreign Scholar Washington Conference

Pulitzer prize-winning author and journalist Stanley Karnow will address 125 foreign Fulbright scholars at the 2001 Fulbright Foreign Scholar Washington Conference on March 7. His topic will be "My Debt to Cousin Louis’ Cornet: The Contributions of Immigrants to American Culture and Society."

The annual Fulbright Foreign Scholar Washington Conference, entitled "Immigration and Migration Past, Present and Future: The American Experience," will be held March 6-11 at the Wyndham City Center Hotel (1143 New Hampshire Avenue, NW) in Washington, DC.

Sponsored by the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (affiliated with the Institute of International Education), the conference will gather 125 foreign scholars who are lecturing and conducting research at colleges and universities throughout the United States. They represent approximately sixty countries and diverse fields of study.

The conference aims to provide the foreign Fulbright scholars with an in-depth exposure to American society, institutions and culture, and the opportunity for discussions with U.S. experts and with each other. They will focus on current U.S. immigration issues and policies from a historical perspective.

Other conference speakers will include Sanford Ungar, Director of the Voice of America, and National Public Radio journalists Barbara Bradley and Ted Clark.

The Fulbright Program, the flagship international educational program sponsored by the United States Government, is designed to "increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries..." Since its establishment in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 230,000 participants — chosen for their leadership potential — with the opportunity to observe each other’s political, economic and cultural institutions, exchange ideas, and embark on joint ventures of importance to the general welfare of the world's inhabitants.
