Winter Fulbright Korea Infusion Published!
While the Fulbright Korea ETA Orientation back in July was certainly hectic and stressful, one of the opportunities that the Orientation team offered new ETAs was the chance to work on the Fulbright Korea Infusion. Infusion, the Korean-American Educational Commission’s (Fulbright Commission in Korea) official publication, is a collaborative magazine of literature, analysis, and art from current and past Fulbright grantees. It’s something unique to Korea’s Fulbright program, as a staff of dedicated ETAs works to cull through and produce a quality publication highlighting the experiences of grantees. It’s also been one of my primary extracurricular activities this year, as I have been privileged to serve as a staff editor for the magazine.
While the magazine is definitely not representative of everyone in Fulbright, it does paint a picture in words and images of what life is like for some grantees during their time here. From inspired poems to beautiful photographs, Infusion documents just a little bit about life through the lens of a grantee here. As a staff editor, I was extremely pleased that one of the pieces that I helped edit (“The Korea Question”) made the Management’s final cut and into the magazine.
While others and I blog frequently about our time on Fulbright, I definitely recommend checking out the Infusion for a curated selection of experiences and reflections, as they are well worth your time. Not to mention, there’s an awesome city guide for those of you that might visit or already be in Korea.
The Infusion publishes in print two times each year. You can check out the latest issue of the Infusion here: http://infusion.fulbright.or.kr. Also, be sure to like the Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/FulbrightKoreaInfusion. Infusion posts exclusive web-content, photos from current ETAs, and selections from across the Internet throughout the week on the page.
