Audio Journey through Spain

By McCall Wells

I chose to understand and connect with the members of the new community in Madrid, Spain through audio documentary, recording a number of conversations with Spaniards about salient political issues, social norms, and even bilingual education.

During the Berlin Seminar 2018 I talked about my "audio journey" through Spain which has served as a means of getting to know Spaniards wherever I go and exchanging ideas in a thoughtful manner, thus upholding the Fulbright commitment to community engagement and cultural ambassadorship.

Matter.
