Croatia

Dr. Jason Hansen, Associate Professor of History at Furman University, returns to UUCS to discuss his six-month service this year as a Fulbright Scholar in the Republic of Croatia. The talk will include a brief history of the Fulbright program, provide an overview of Dr. Hansen’s research program and give insight into Croatia’s history and politics. It will also discuss the challenges, opportunities and simple oddities of living abroad. The beloved son-in-law of Palma and Mitch Eisner, Dr. Hansen has traveled extensively in Central Europe, with particular concern for refugee populations and their politicization in the EU.
