Honors Dance major, Latika Young ’03, wins Fulbright

Latika Young ’03 has won a Fulbright Fellowship for 2009. An honors dance major with a minor in environmental studies, Latika will teach English to students at the University of Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina and will advise on educational matters for the university and for outreach projects.

In addition, she will create a video documentary that explores how artistic practices connect across socio-political boundaries within the country. Having become interested in the post-socialist state while studying abroad with the Swarthmore program in Poland, her most recent research took her to Kosovo in the summer of 2007, where she produced a documentary about the divided town of Kosovska Mitrovica with students from around South East Europe.
