Double Portrait, the upcoming exhibit at BMCC's Shirley Fiterman Art Center, is designed to open a conversation not only about issues in contemporary art, but also about such topics as identity, women’s studies, and subjectivity and the self. We invite you and your students to contribute to this cultural conversation.

The most exciting and rewarding experience of my academic career thus far was being awarded a Fulbright Fellowship. I spent the 2015-2016 academic year at University of Turku in Finland, and this award set me on a path that I could not have anticipated, and for which I could not be more thankful. I encourage my colleagues to explore the multitude of possibilities for Fulbright awards.
