Gustavus Adolphus College professor of English, Dr. Greg Mason, has been accepted into the United States Fulbright Scholar Program for the 2008-09 academic year. Mason plans to teach American Literature and Culture in Montenegro during the spring semester next year.

“The opportunity to teach in Montenegro promises to be very enriching for me both personally and professionally,” Mason said. “I look forward to being immersed in an environment and in cultural practices and traditions that are quite unfamiliar to me.”

Mason has taught at Gustavus since 1971 and is the founder of the College’s curricular peace studies program, for which he served as director from 1985-2002. During that time, Mason also served as chair of the College’s annual MAYDAY! Peace Conference. He also served two terms as chair of the College’s English department from 1979-82 and again from 1982-85. Mason is retiring from Gustavus at the end of this year.

The Fulbright Scholar Program sends 800 United States faculty and professionals abroad each year to lecture and conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields. The program is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
