Gerard Cohen-Vrignaud awarded Fulbright Fellowship 2014-2015

Gerard Cohen-Vrignaud, a member of the University of Tennessee’s nineteenth-century British literature faculty, has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to teach in the English department at Cadi Ayyad University in Marrakesh, Morocco during 2014-15.


He’s proposed teaching the following courses on “Orientalism in English and American Literature” and “Translation: Theory and Practice.”


One of the benefits of Gerard’s Fulbright is the opportunity it will provide him to advance his fluency in Arabic, which he studied for four years in graduate school. His Moroccan year builds on his previous immersion study of Arabic in Yemen in 2007 on a Critical Language Scholarship. Congratulations, Gerard!
