Onsrud receives Fulbright Specialists Award

Harlan Onsrud has been selected for a Fulbright Specialists project in Law in Australia at The University of Melbourne during February and March 2009, according to the United States Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.  Onsrud will develop and present five major lectures, known collectively as the 2009 Melbourne Fulbright Lectures on Cyberlaw and Spatial Technologies, focusing on key legal and policy issues with which the global spatial technology and mobile computing communities have been struggling. The lectures will be presented in a variety of academic forums and archived on the web to form a framework for global academic and practitioner discussions of the issues. The Fulbright Specialists Program, created in 2000 to complement the traditional Fulbright Scholar Program, provides short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) to prominent U.S. faculty and professionals to support curricular and faculty development and institutional planning at post secondary, academic institutions around the world. Congratulations to Harlan on receiving this award!
