Fulbright Scholar in Spain During COVID in Spring 2020

I arrived in Madrid on January 15, 2020, ecstatic to finally be realizing two long-standing dreams: living in the exciting, stunning Spanish capital, and participating in the Fulbright Scholar Program. My Senior Fulbright Scholar award consisted of two parts. First, I was to teach a class in comparative political economy (“Varidades del Capitalismo”) at the Universidad Carlos III Madrid (UC3M). Secondly, I was to conduct field research for my project on Spanish wine politics.
