Fulbright Association Interviews Alexa Alice Joubin in Celebration of Its 75th Anniversary
The Future of Fulbright, December 15, 2021
What will the next 75 years of the Fulbright Association bring? We asked Fulbright Alumni Ambassadors to respond to several questions about Fulbright and its future.
We asked Alexa Alice Joubin: Tell us about the one thing that you shared about yourself or your community during your Fulbright experience that added to the host community’s understanding of what it means to be “American.”
She said: “During my Fulbright year in London, we discussed, in the classroom and in various workshops, how the British and Americans use different vocabularies to talk about racial relationships. As an Asian American woman, I hope my presence enabled British students of color to feel represented, and inspired them both to examine exclusionary practices in our own times and to reevaluate Shakespeare as a gender-inclusive and anti-racist canon.”
