Writing Culture and Cultures of Writing

In this new Think Global Thinkpiece, Fulbright Teaching Assistant Lindsey Appell examines what it really means to have mutual cultural exchange. Reflecting on her experience as an American working in a university in Bucharest, she describes how some of her assumptions about academic life were challenged, and how being open to these challenges, and embracing the unexpected, helped her experience deep cultural change - and a richer international experience as a result.
