Andrew Leong – Ph.D. Candidate, Comparative Literature, University of California, Berkeley; Fulbright Scholar

This isn't Andrew Leong's first time at Middlebury. In 2006, he spent a summer in the Japanese School as part of his exploration of literature written by Japanese migrants to the Americas. Now, he's taking on Portuguese. "The largest part of the Japanese diaspora is in Brazil," says Andrew. "I'm improving my Portuguese so I can do research in-language." After Middlebury, Andrew will travel to Japan on a Fulbright grant. There, he'll study primary source documents and interview migrants of Japanese descent who have returned from Brazil and Peru.
