Two Knox faculty members awarded Fulbrights

From the Register-Mail:

For the second year in a row, the U.S. State Department has awarded Fulbright Scholar fellowships to members of the Knox College faculty to conduct international teaching and research.

Stuart Allison, professor of biology, will travel to the United Kingdom starting in the fall to compare ecological restoration practices in Europe and the United States.

Amy Singer, assistant professor of anthropology and sociology, will work in Indonesia on a study of the global flow of agricultural commodities and cultural markets.

Assistant professor of music Jeremy Day-O’Connell and professor of political science Karen Kampwirth received Fulbright Scholar grants in 2009-10. Day-O’Connell will return to Scotland later this year to complete his research on music and language. Kampwirth taught in last fall in Argentina. In recent years, Knox has been among the top liberal arts colleges for faculty and students receiving Fulbright grants for international research and teaching.
