Commentary on the Politics, History and Culture of the Middle East and Central Asia, by Brian Ulrich
Thursday, March 31, 2005
I have just received a rejection letter regarding my latest Fulbright-Hays application. My professors here thought my application was sterling, so I guess the boards and my topic just aren't mixing very well. I'm rather disappointed at the moment.
Time to contemplate my next move, I guess.
UPDATE: Faculty are surprised I didn't make the cut. I guess that's a compliment.
I am an Associate Professor in History at Shippensburg University, where I teach courses in Middle Eastern and world history. My two major research areas are the Middle East from the 7th through 10th centuries and the Persian Gulf from ancient times to the present. Nothing on this site represents an official position of Shippensburg University.
