Professor Murray Wins Senior Fulbright Specialist Award

Martin Murray, Professor of Urban and Regional Planning and Adjunct Professor, Department of Afro-American and African Studies, was awarded a Senior Fulbright Specialist Award to work in Dortmund, Germany from May 1 - June 13, 2017. His project titled “Dortmund, Arrival City” brings together students and faculty at TU Dortmund to provide a better understanding of the recent refugee community that has arrived in the city and how they are integrated into the city. The project is made up of a seminar and field study component where students will work with the primarily Syrian refugees to investigate their housing, social support system, and German language instruction.

Professor Murray will also give a public lecture at TU Dortmund on Wednesday May 17, 2017. For lecture and interview details: http://www.tu-dortmund.de/uni/de/Uni/aktuelles/meldungen/2017-05/17-05-19-murray/index.html
