Global Perspectives on Race+, Ethnicity+, and Nation+

“Global Perspectives on Race+, Ethnicity+, and Nation+” 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, ethnicity, and/or nationality as broadly conceived in any country outside the United States. Projects might include, but are not limited to, the interplay of race, ethnicity, and/or nationality on inequalities/inequities and the egalitarian movements they foster; imperialism and colonialism; ethnic conflict; community and coalition building, and race, ethnicity, and/or nationality with gender, sexuality, religion, education, labor, science, art, and/or health. Comparative projects that are primarily global and include some research in the United States will be considered. Outcomes may include publications, external funding, programmatic work, research capacity building, performance, 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 each year. 

Applications for 2022-23 are now closed. Applications for 2023-24 will open in Fall 2023.
