Global Perspectives on Race

“Global Perspectives on Race” is a new grant offered by the Halle Institute for Global Research. Full-time, continuing, regular faculty from any of Emory’s nine schools are eligible to apply as Primary Investigators for innovative research  projects from any disciplinary, interdisciplinary, or multi-disciplinary perspective. Student participation is encouraged but not required.

This grant supports research that examines race as broadly conceived in any country outside the United States. Projects might include, but are not limited to, the very construction of the category 'race'; inequalities/inequities and the egalitarian movements they foster; the interplay of race with imperialism and colonialism; the intersections of race with gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, education, labor, science, art, and/or health. Comparative projects that include some research in the United States will be considered. Outcomes may include publications, external funding, programmatic work, research capacity building, art exhibitions and/or other forms of research-based activity.

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all grant-related travel must adhere to Emory University policies as well as local restrictions, border controls, and sanitary procedures. 

The grant will fund up to two projects in 2020-21.
