Inga Zhghenti

An associate professor of English Philology at East European University, Zhghenti also serves as an invited lecturer at Caucasus University, both located in Tbilisi, Georgia. During her stay at Stockton, Zhghenti is researching the representation of gender themes in Edward Albee dramas and the interpretation of these themes in Georgian performances of American plays. Her study focuses on the literary, linguistic, social, political, psychological and technical interpretations of the drama on stage through the lens of Judith Butler’s gender performative theory. It also examines the social, psychological and political foundations of gender, including how these themes are understood and expressed in language, their formal and contextual representation and the staging of Albee’s plays.

 Fulbright Students: Ciara Barrick and Naijasia Thomas

Stockton Student Exchange with European University Cyprus

Moving from South Jersey’s Pinelands to an island nation of pines, cedars and cypresses may require some translation, but a new cultural exchange program with European University Cyprus (EUC) will enable Stockton students to be immersed in another culture while teaching English.

Ciara Barrick, who was awarded a Fulbright to teach English at EUC after graduating from Stockton in 2015, teamed with David Roessel, professor of Greek Language and Literature, to apply for a Fulbright Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund award to set up the exchange.

The Ocean City, N.J. resident’s application was one of only 51 funded by the State Department, out of the more than 800 submitted by Fulbright alumni. It’s also a first for the Republic of Cyprus, the third largest island in the Mediterranean.
