TWU Visual Arts Alumni Awarded Fulbright!
2012-2013

Please join the Department of Visual Arts and the Department of Women's Studies in congratulating Elizabeth Claffey on her 2012-2013 U.S. Fulbright Fellowship Award for the proposed photographic work, 'Home: Images of Domestic Traditions in Albania'. This fellowship is a full grant awarded by the U.S. Department of State and will provide the opportunity for Elizabeth to travel to Albania and produce imagery that explores current cultural identity and transformation since the transition from Communism, as shaped by women's influences on domestic space. When complete, this body of work will make a tremendous contribution to the discipline of photographic storytelling as a tool for creating international compassion and cultural understanding through artistic expression.

We are grateful to our Visual Arts faculty, Susan kae Grant and Jana Perez, for their guidance with Elizabeth's project proposal and for providing letters of reference. Thanks also go to Dr. Stephen Souris, and the Fulbright Review Committee; Monica Mendez-Grant, Dr. Claire L. Sahlin, Juanita Duenez-Lazo, Jordan Fuchs, and Kyle Voyles, for their support and assistance in reviewing and stewarding Elizabeth's application process.
