The Fulbright Experience: Continuing Collaboration and Alumni Impact

Every year, the Fulbright US Scholar Program provides up to 25 academics with the opportunity to spend a semester at one of Fulbright Austria’s partner institutions, where they conduct research, teach, and advise students. Very often, their Fulbright experience extends far beyond the four months spent in Austria. As an international educational and cultural exchange program, the Fulbright US Scholar Program was designed to initiate contact between US academics and faculty and students at their host institutions and lay the ground for long-term collaborations. At the same time, the program wants to provide grantees with opportunities to build their academic careers and focus on their scholarship.

Alumni installation: “Kreuz und Quer”: Arnold Schoenberg’s Reimagining of Melody and Harmony, June 11, 2018

In this exhibit, US Fulbright alumni Franziska Brunner and Ross Lipton crossed boundaries of research and academic presentation to transfer their intellectual work into artistic practices, including visual art, installation, and sound design. They explored Arnold Schoenberg’s varied and far-reaching ideas of melody and harmony, which span from his early years in Vienna and Berlin to his later years in California. With approaches coming from the distantly related disciplines of historical musicology and comparative literature, Schoenberg the composer, artist, theorist, and pedagogue offered fruitful common ground for their creative and intellectual explorations. This experience was designed to provoke a dialogue about the relevance and value of new music and art in a world in which stark oppositions have become the norm.

Dune spent his formative years in various European countries, lived in a variety of different states in the US, and studied abroad in the course of getting his BA in Theater & Dance with a focus on Language Studies from the University of Texas at Austin.

He then established himself as a professional translator, editor and writer, working with an international array of clients to craft contracts, essays, theses, and other content related to wide-ranging topics and fields before joining the Fulbright Austria team. With his colleague Belona Berchtaler currently on leave, Dune has assumed responsibility as the program officer for both the USTA and FLTA programs and is looking forward to getting to know the American citizens who come to Austria to teach and their Austrian counterparts assisting in German language classrooms in universities around the US.
