Haley Horstman, an associate professor in the College of Arts and Science’s Communication Department, recently received a Fulbright U.S. Scholar award for her work in family storytelling, trauma and resilience.
As a Fulbright Scholar, Horstman will work at the Polish Institute of Advanced Studies in Warsaw, Poland, for nine months beginning in November 2021. She will conduct research on how families construct and transmit resilience to their children through storytelling.
“The Fulbright is a very prestigious award, but it’s not surprising Dr. Horstman received it on her first time applying,” said Brian Houston, chair of the Communication Department. “She has an extensive record of international education and research.”
