ORONO, Maine — Gregory Zaro, associate professor of anthropology and climate change at the University of Maine, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture and conduct research at the University of Zadar in Croatia during the Spring 2013 semester.

According to the United States Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, Zaro will engage in an interdisciplinary teaching and research effort to evaluate landscape evolution and human agency along the Dalmatian Coast over the past two millennia, from early Roman colonization through the medieval period, and into the present era. He will work closely with Croatian scientists and students to compile archaeological, cultural, historical and environmental data as they relate to landscape change and human resource management along the Eastern Adriatic across time.
