"A Poem for Umm Kulthum"

Corinne Stokes is a #Fulbright-mtvU Fellow in the United Arab Emirates. In a recent blog post, she shared the pleasure she has found in listening to the artist Umm Kulthum. "'Umm Kulthum or Al-Intithar' is about the experience of listening to Umm Kulthum’s songs and the pleasure the listener takes in waiting—in anticipating her vocal entrances and anticipating her repetitions."

In early November, I went to an open mic for local poets at an Abu Dhabi venue called The Space. It was the fourth event in a new Rooftop Rhythms series for

"Learning Icelandic in a Tin Can Factory"

Scott Shigeoka is a Fulbright-mtvU Fellow in Iceland. In a recent blog post, he shares his experience learning Icelandic in an alternative, continuing education school in Reykjavík. "Learning Icelandic has helped me experience the country on a deeper level that transcends the nature and music scene for which it is often stereotypically appreciated. The best part of Tin Can Factory, however, was to be a part of a community that had a shared goal of bridging the distance between foreigners and locals."

“‘About 40 percent of our students will go directly into the work force, where globalization is becoming increasingly important,’ said Wayne C. Wheeler, director of international programs and services for the American Association of Community Colleges. ‘Since study abroad isn’t a viable option for many of our students, the #Fulbright Program is one way colleges can bring the world to their campuses.’”
