The Chronicle of Higher Education dubs John Atchley '06 a 'new kind of Fulbrighter'
The Chronicle of Higher Education profiles John Atchley ’06 in a story about the changing focus of Fulbright scholars in India. Atchley, an English major at Bates, is studying the Golden Quadrilateral, a massive highway project connecting more than 30 of India’s largest cities. Writer Shailaja Neelakantan suggests that “a decade ago, an American college graduate interested in India might have researched Indian literature or studied its social systems. But Mr. Atchley represents a new kind of Fulbrighter here, a scholar doing research on what Fulbright administrators call ‘new India’ fields.” View story.
