Atlanta Global Research and Education Collaborative (AGREC) Call for Proposals

AGSC is delighted to announce the AGREC Academic Year 2021-22 Call for Proposals and to welcome KSU to the Collaborative this year (see the news release). 

Housed within the Atlanta Global Studies Center (AGSC), AGREC is comprised of six universities:
  • AGSC, a partnership of Georgia Tech and Georgia State University
  • Emory University’s Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives 
  • Agnes Scott College’s SUMMIT Center for Global Learning and Leadership Development
  • Spelman College’s Gordon Zeto Center for Global Education
  • Kennesaw State University
AGREC seeks to build and strengthen collaborative networks of multi-institutional scholars and practitioners to support global research and education initiatives in the Greater Atlanta region. 

AGREC Call for proposals: Connecting globally while grounded at home (2021-2022)
Due: July 1, 2021

AGREC invites scholars to submit collaborative projects across disciplines, institutions, and universities that address a need in our global and local communities. This call aims to address topics with a global connection while being grounded locally. Scholars and practitioners may examine a local and global problem in the form of research, workshop, forum, or suggest another approach by collaborating with an organization in Atlanta or a population group that has a global dimension.
Preference will be given to innovative, transformative collaborative research and education projects in global engagement with significant emphasis on their potential to develop new and strategic sustainable relationships among partners (e.g. universities, companies, NGOs, community organizations) and their impact on Atlanta communities.

Georgia Tech

FLAS Fellow Spotlight:

Ben Earl-Moseley

Benjamin Earl-Moseley is a third-year Aerospace engineering major and a Chinese language minor at Georgia Tech. He has been studying Chinese since elementary school and hopes to turn his Chinese minor into an ALIS Chinese degree to double major in aerospace engineering and Chinese. 

Why Aerospace Engineering and Chinese?
"The transportation industry, in general, is really important, and I think that aerospace is a unique field that connects people around the world. There's a lot of change happening in aerospace to find more sustainable flight solutions and get people places faster and safer and in more sustainable ways. The Chinese aviation market is the largest in the world, and is highly sought after by American companies, but is often not catered to because its such a different market than that of the U.S. market. American companies really need people like me who have the cultural and linguistic understanding to help develop products in better ways to a global

Why is studying a foreign language important?
"Even if you don't end up using another language in a career, it's valuable because it causes you to think differently, exposes you to new cultures, and promotes problem-solving skills. Not to mention Chinese is going to become the most important language to know." 
Georgia State University

FLAS Fellow Spotlight:

Ashley Aguilar

Ashley Aguilar is a senior at Georgia State University pursuing a degree in International Economics and Modern Languages. She currently studies Chinese but hopes to learn other languages such as Korean, Italian, Persian, or Hindi. After graduation, she plans to work in the U.S. Department of Commerce or the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Why is studying a language important to you? Why do you like studying Chinese?

The way I see it, studying another language is a bridge to communication and to cultural adaptability. Studying a language will overcome language barriers that one might face; as a result, language can expose someone to new perspectives, customs and traditions, and cultural environments. Not only do I want to communicate and understand a culture completely different from mine, but I am able to build the linguistic skills necessary for a professional career. For example, studying Chinese for International Business. I like studying Chinese because I can take a different approach to my interactions with Chinese locals abroad and in Atlanta. Through language, I feel more comfortable speaking and engaging with the Chinese community. As someone who has had the opportunity to travel throughout Asia, the Chinese language allowed me to have conversations with taxi drivers in Malaysia, Taiwan and Korea. 

What kind of impact has the FLAS fellowship had on you?
Without FLAS, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to continue to study Chinese at an advanced level. Also, the global cultural class requirements have allowed me to explore Chinese culture, society, and language at my own pace and in an area that I'm interested in. I recently have been attending the Global Career Series webinars hosted by the AGSC including events hosted by the U.S. Department of State, USAID, Peace Corps, the Carter Center, and the US Department of Commerce. The events have been really valuable, especially considering what type of career I want to explore after graduating.

Faculty Spotlight:

Anjali Thomas 

Anjali Thomas, AGSC affiliated faculty, is an Assistant Professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and Director of the Nunn School Program in Global Development at Georgia Tech. We talked to Dr. Thomas about her research and recent initiatives she is involved in.
What are you currently working on in your research?  I am currently working mainly on two projects that fall in the general field of global development. One of these projects addresses the UN SDG of gender equality by examining the conditions that can lead to greater political representation of women in ethnically divided societies. Specifically, my collaborators and I have conducted a large survey in Northern India and will use these data in combination with insights derived from interviews with women local politicians and party officials in the area to examine the factors that shape the electability of women candidates in poor areas prone to ethnic violence and discrimination. The second of these projects addresses several UN SDGs including SDG 6 “Clean water and sanitation” and SDG 10 “Reduced Inequalities” by examining the role of civil society empowerment in helping slum-dwellers in Mumbai, India improve their access to water. Additionally, I have also recently become director of the Nunn School’s program on Global Development and am working on several upcoming events that engage students and faculty in conversations on key areas relating to development.

You’ve been named one of the first four Jim Pope Faculty Fellows for CREATE-X. What are your plans for this new exciting program? As a Jim Pope faculty fellow this year, I am excited about working to incorporate entrepreneurship into the Nunn School’s various curricular offerings including the Nunn School’s Global Development undergraduate minor offered jointly with the School of Mechanical Engineering and the school’s newly established graduate certificate in Global Development offered jointly with the School of Economics and the School of City and Regional Planning. I believe that the skills and methodologies of evidence-based entrepreneurship can be usefully applied to discovering solutions for many of the problems and challenges associated with Global Development and I look forward to finding ways to empower Georgia Tech undergraduate and graduate students to do this. 

Can you say a few words about AGCS’s contributions to your work and/or the Development Studies program? I am very grateful to the AGSC for the support they have provided me in the form of a course development grant in the Summer of 2019 which I used for the INTA 2050: Introduction to Global Development course which is a required introductory course for the Global Development minor offered by the Nunn School in collaboration with Mechanical Engineering. I was able to use this grant to develop several modules and assignments that helped students apply course concepts to real-world problems that students care about and to understand how global development draws upon and connects a range of disciplines.
I am also grateful to the AGSC for their support in organizing a large symposium on UN SDGs that featured an interesting panel on Comparative Development and the role of the State where I had the opportunity to present my research and participate in an interesting discussion with colleagues and students from various institutions in the Atlanta area on an important topic.
