AFS Executive Board Member and Associate Professor at the Ohio State University Katherine Borland has been awarded the 2018–2019 Fulbright Bicentennial Chair in American Studies at the University of Helsinki in Finland. 

About this distinguished position, the Fulbright Center writes:

"The Fulbright Bicentennial Chair was established in 1976 to institutionalize the teaching of American history, culture and language at the University of Helsinki. It was the first chair in the Fulbright Distinguished Chairs Program. The Bicentennial Chair holder has played a crucial role in developing the interdisciplinary approach to American studies found at the University of Helsinki and at other Finnish universities with American studies programs. Today it is one of the most prestigious appointments in the Fulbright Scholar Program."

Congratulations to Dr. Borland!
