Marcy J. Dinius, an associate professor in the Department of English, has earned a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program award. She will use this award in spring 2022 to lecture at Ochanomizu University and Tsuda University, two prestigious women's universities, in Tokyo.
At DePaul, Dinius' work and teaching focus on 19th century U.S. literature, African American literature, book culture history and material cultures. As a Fulbright Scholar, Dinius will share knowledge and foster meaningful connections across communities in the United States and Japan.
Fulbright Scholars engage in meaningful teaching and cutting-edge research and expand their professional networks, often continuing teaching and research collaborations started abroad and laying the groundwork for forging future partnerships between institutions. Upon returning to their home countries and classrooms, they share their stories and often become active supporters of international exchange, inviting foreign scholars to campus and encouraging colleagues and students to go abroad.
Those interested in becoming a Fulbright Scholar are welcome to attend an upcoming information session hosted by DePaul's Fulbright mentor for faculty, Scott Bucking.
