Faculty & Staff

Dr. Daniel J. Doyle, a professor of history at Pennsylvania College of Technology, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to teach in Egypt this fall.

Dr. Doyle is one of approximately 800 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel to 140 countries for the 2003-04 academic year through the Fulbright Scholar Program, an educational-exchange activity sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

While the details of Dr. Doyle's lectureship have not been finalized, he is expected to teach within an American Studies department at a university in Egypt for the fall semester, which lasts from mid-September through mid-January.

Dr. Doyle's proposal calls for him to teach courses relating to the history of "Technology and Society" (industrialization in the United States) and "Technology and Propaganda" (visual media of 19th and 20th centuries in the United States printing, photography, film, television and the World Wide Web).

Dr. Doyle, who earned his Ph.D. from St. John's University, received Penn College's highest honor for faculty, the Master Teacher Award, in 1984.

Recipients of Fulbright Scholar awards are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement and because they have demonstrated extraordinary leadership potential in their fields. Established in 1946 by legislation introduced by the late Sen. J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright Program seeks to promote mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries.

Since the program's inception nearly six decades ago, thousands of faculty and professionals from the United States have studied, taught or performed research abroad, and thousands of their counterparts in other countries have participated in similar activities here.
