Dean of Research in Romania for Erasmus+ Mobility Program

Prof. Jamil Khader, Dean of Research and Professor of English at Bethlehem University, recently undertook a teaching mobility at the “Vasile Goldis” Western University of Arad, Romania, under the Erasmus+ mobility program from 13-19 March 2023.

On this mobility, Prof. Khader was scheduled to give several talks on Palestinian culture and art to students in medical bioethics courses, which were taught by the University’s Rector Professor Coralia-Adina Cotoraci. He delivered two more talks to students in Prof. Dima Laza Stancuta’s language courses.

He also met with the Rector and her cabinet and visited different research labs in an effort to establish new connections between researchers at Bethlehem University and researchers at Vasile Goldis. In addition, he met with two Bethlehem University exchange students who are currently studying at Vasile Goldis: Yumna Jabari from the Department of English and Yazeed Amleh from Business Administration.

During this visit, Professor Khader was able to immerse himself in Romanian culture, by visiting various cities and regions, including Bucharest, Transylvania, and Timisoara, the European Capital of Culture 2023.
