Two Emory University faculty members have been awarded 2000-2001 Fulbright
scholar grants to conduct international research. Edna Bay of the Graduate
Institute of Liberal Arts and Donald Stein of the Graduate School of
Arts and Sciences are the recipients.
Bay, a resident of Stone Mountain (30087), is an associate professor,
whose teaching and research interests are African and Caribbean culture
and history, women's history, women and development, and art and material
culture. Her Fulbright grant is for lecturing and research at the University
of the West Indies in Mona, Jamaica, on gender in Africa and the cultures
of post-emancipation African immigrants to 19th-century Jamaica.
Her publications include "Wives of the Leopard: Gender, Politics,
and Culture in the Kingdom of Dahomey" (University of Virginia
Press, 1998); "ASEN: Iron Altars of the Fon People of Benin"
(Emory, 1985); editor of "Women and Work in Africa" (Westview,
1982); and co-editor of "Women in Africa: Studies in Social and
Economic Change" (Stanford University Press, 1976). She has been
a member of the Emory faculty since 1980.
He was appointed vice provost and dean of the Graduate School of Arts
and Sciences in August 1995, and served in that capacity until spring
2000 when he chose to return to the faculty to continue his research
and teaching. Prior to coming to Emory, Stein served as a faculty member
and as dean of the graduate school and associate provost for research
at Rutgers University.
The recipient of a number of Fulbright scholar and awards from Institut
National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale for travel
and research in France, Stein studied at the Université Claude
Bernard, Lyon, the Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, and
the École Pratique des Hautes Études, Paris.
The Fulbright Scholar Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of
State, with additional funding from participating governments and host
institutions in the United States and abroad. The Council for International
Exchange of Scholars is a private, nonprofit organization that manages
Fulbright scholar exchanges. Final selections are made by the presidentially-appointed
J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, which also formulates
policy for the program.
