Fulbright in Seoul (the Korean American Educational Commission) is pleased
to invite you to attend the Fulbright Forum for October, which will be held
on Friday, October 12, 2001, at 6:30 p.m. at the Commission offices in Mapo.
This event is rescheduled from its original planned date in September.

The speaker will be Ms. Andrea Rosenberger, Fulbright research grantee to
Korea.  Ms. Rosenberger, a fiber artist, completed her B.F.A. at the
University of Wisconsin-Madison and her M.F.A. at the Cranbrook Academy of
Art.  Ms. Rosenberger, a Korean adoptee, is in Korea doing research on the
effect of historical Korean textiles on contemporary Korean fiber art.

Ms. Rosenberger will show her artwork and speak on: "100% Korean: The
Effects of Place and Space."  Ms. Rosenberger says, "The phrase '100%
Korean' suggests that something about the person, object or trait described
is somehow from/of or is completely Korean.  However, as so often is the
case, there are a plethora of definitions to what it means to be 100% and to
be Korean.  This lecture will illustrate how space and place can shape,
alter and redefine things that are 100% and things that are Korean."

This monthly Fulbright Forum is an opportunity to greet the new Fulbright
scholars and graduate students who have arrived over the summer.  We welcome
to the Forum all Fulbrighters, senior lecturers and junior researchers, as
well as Board Members, Fulbright alumni, Peace Corps alumni, Korean studies
scholars, foreign graduate students, and other friends of Korea and members
of the Fulbright family.

The presentation will be followed by a buffet reception (in lieu of dinner.)
We hope many friends will come to enjoy the lecture, the discussion, and the
