South Carolina professor Dr. Nathanial Wallace(Orangeburg, S.C.) - Dr. Nathaniel Wallace, professor in the Department of English and Modern Languages at SC State University, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture and carry out research at the University of Bergen in Bergen, Norway during the 2011-2012 academic years. During the fall term, Wallace will teach Norwegian citizens an introductory American studies course and a graduate course entitled: “American Prose, Poetry, and Visual Contexts.” In the spring term, Wallace will pursue a research project in cognitive aesthetics, which is a field of study combining abstract ideas about beauty with empirically-based studies of how the brain processes sensory data tied to configurations of form, color and movement.
The Fulbright Scholar Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the United States government. It is designed to increase communal understanding between the people of the U.S. and the citizens of other countries.  
Wallace has been a member of the SC State University campus community since 1991 and teaches a range of courses such as composition, world literature, Milton and the romantic movement.
Wallace is one of approximately 1,100 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad through the Fulbright Scholar Program in 2011-2012.
