Marian's Haberski Receives Fulbright Award

Dr. Raymond J. Haberski Jr. (pictured), associate professor of history and director of the Honors Program at Marian College, has been named the Danish Distinguished Chair in American Studies through the Fulbright Scholar Program.

The Marian news bureau reports that during the 2008-09 academic year, he will teach courses at the Center for the Study of the Americas at Copenhagen Business School and further his research on U.S. intellectual and cultural history.

Haberski has taught at Marian College since 2000 and written three books that use American movie culture to explore how mass culture has changed assumptions about what constitutes art (It’s Only a Movie, 2001), how culture becomes controversial (Freedom to Offend, 2007), and why free speech protection for movies is significant (The Miracle Case, 2008).
