Randolph Professor Receives Second Fulbright




Jennifer Gauthier, a Randolph College communication studies professor, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant for the fall semester.

Gauthier will serve as Research Chair in North American Society and Culture at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec and will pursue her research on First Nations cinema at the National Film Board of Canada. This project examines films made by and about the Native peoples of Canada during the NFB’s 70-year history.

Gauthier is one of approximately 1,100 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program in 2011-2012, according to the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

This is Gauthier’s second Fulbright. From 2000-2001 she completed the research for her Ph.D. dissertation in Ottawa at the University of Ottawa’s Institute for Canadian Studies.
