I was fortunate to have received a Fulbright Grant to teach American Studies and English in the Department of British and American Studies at Safarik University during the 2007–2008 academic year. My year at Safarik broadened my view of Central European history and culture, helped me make personal and professional connections that launched my teaching career in the United States, and was one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life. Thank you to all of my colleagues and students at Safarik for a memorable year!

I am very glad I had an opportunity to do research at the Department of British and American Studies at UPJS in Košice for a number of reasons. Firstly, my host professor and the academic and administrative staff of the department are very knowledgeable and helpful. Secondly, I had access to materials and library resources required for my research. Thirdly, Košice is a very nice place with things to see and do and is also well linked to other places of interest.
