Hilary Morris Earns Fulbright to Nepal

Musicology doctoral candidate Hilary Brady Morris has been awarded a Fulbright grant to conduct 10 months of dissertation research in Nepal on the Himalayan lute.

Her ethnographic study focuses on the intersections of music and belonging through investigating Himalayan lutes in the ethnically diverse neighborhood of Boudhanath, Kathmandu.

While abroad, Morris will also provide English-language tutoring and translation in local schools and monasteries.  She also seeks to volunteer with local organizations and facilitate cultural exchange through community outreach. Her long-term goals include an academic career in ethnomusicology and Himalayan studies, directing a music ensemble partnering with Himalayan guest artists and cultivating a student-exchange program.
