Professor Nigel Boyle Awarded Fulbright
Sauce for the Gander!

Nigel Boyle
Professor Nigel Boyle has been awarded a faculty Fulbright to teach in Germany for the 2008-09 academic year.

Nigel Boyle, Peter and Gloria Gold Professor of Political Studies and student Fulbright Adviser, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to Germany. Boyle will spend the 2008-09 academic year at the Universit├Ąt Koblenz-Landau (Landau campus). He will teach Comparative and European Politics while conducting research on the Hartz labor market reforms that have been implemented in Germany since 2003.

"I always get a big vicarious thrill when Pitzer students I have worked with tell me they have won a Fulbright. For myself the satisfaction of winning is tempered by the knowledge that I have to go and do the bloody work now. But this is a nice professional opportunity for me and and a great opportunity for my family (wife Vanessa Ashworth, children Molly 13, Anezka 10 and Jimmy 4) to live abroad for a year."

President Laura Trombley said, "Nigel has been a tireless Fulbright adviser for numerous Pitzer students. Being awarded a Fulbright is indeed a great and well-deserved honor."
