UConn professor Joseph Comprone wins Fulbright Scholar Grant
July 21, 2010
Joseph Comprone, a professor of English at the University of Connecticut at Avery Point, is awarded a Fulbright Scholar Grant for the 2010-2011 academic year. Joseph will spend the coming year in Singapore, teaching American literature and carrying out research into the reading processes of Singaporeans.
Joseph will be in residence during his year abroad at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. The themes in the readings, which focus on such characteristic topics as the “American Dream,” may resonate differently with people of other cultures, Joseph says.
