Phil Tiemeyer receives Fulbright Fellowship to travel to Serbia
Phil Tiemeyer, assistant professor of history, was awarded a five-month teaching and research Fulbright Fellowship based in Belgrade, Serbia. He will teach at the University of Belgrade's Centre for the Study of the United States of America.
Tiemeyer's research will involve the study of JAT Yugoslav Airways during the Cold War as part of his new book project: "Aerial Ambassadors: National Airlines and US Power in the Jet Age." He'll be diving into the Archives of Yugoslavia, as well as archives of the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Serbian Museum of Aviation, and collecting oral histories with former JAT flight attendants and pilots.
