The North American Studies program and the Fulbright Center collaborated from 2010-2013 to organize an annual American In Living Color Seminar.
This seminar provided a forum for the Fulbright grantees to Finland to present their research to each other, and to the university community. The resulting multidisciplinary mini-conference gave a unique opportunity for all participants to gain an understanding of a variety of academic fields - from biology to humanities, engineering to education.
The seminar was open for all students and staff members at the University of Tampere.
