Lorelle Browning Receives Second Fulbright
As a university student, Lorelle Browning experienced firsthand the trauma of dissent and chaos on American campuses caused by the United States involvement in the Vietnam War. Now, as a professor of English and peace and justice studies at Pacific University, she uses those experiences to promote understanding between the cultures of Vietnam and the United States.
Browning is recognized as a renowned non-native expert on Vietnamese theatre. Over the past 19 years, she has traveled 25 times to Vietnam, collaborating and co-producing numerous theatre productions involving both Vietnamese and American professional actors in Vietnam and the U.S. She often works closely with Allen Nause, artistic director emeritus of Portland Artists Repertory Theatre.
