Eric Schuck, an associate professor of economics at Linfield, will share his experience teaching in Lebanon in his lecture, “Kefar, Hello, Ca Va – Living Learning and Lecturing in the Levant,” on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 3 p.m. in Jonasson Hall at Linfield.
As part of the Fulbright Senior Specialist Program, Schuck spent six weeks teaching and developing a curriculum in water resource management at American University in Beirut, Lebanon. He will discuss his teaching and research at American University, as well as postwar reconstruction and economic development in Lebanon. He will also share some of his experiences traveling in the country.
The Fulbright Senior Specialist Program provides professors with short-term opportunities to teach and conduct research around the world.
This is Schuck’s second stint in the Fulbright program. In 2006, he developed curriculum for the Integrated Water Resource Management Program at the University of Western Cape in Capetown, South Africa. That work inspired the development of Linfield’s 2008 January Term course, Post-Apartheid Developmental and Environmental Economics of South Africa.
Schuck graduated with a B.A. in economics from Pacific Lutheran University in 1993, and a master’s from the University of Montana in 1995. He received his Ph.D. in agricultural and resource economics from Washington State University in 1999. He has published his work in several scholarly journals that emphasize a dedication toward creating solutions to global issues.
The lecture is sponsored by the International Programs Office. For more information, contact Michele Tomseth, 503-883-2434, email@example.com.
