OVERVIEW OF THE CENTER FOR GEORGIA STUDIES

Formally recognized by the University System Board of Regents in 1998, the Center for Georgia Studies was created to provide a comprehensive examination of all aspects of Georgia life, history, and culture.

The Center complements the mission of Georgia College - to "promote critical reflection and the advancement of knowledge" through the study of the natural and human environments, history, economics, literature, art, music, and folk traditions-providing Georgians and non-Georgians with "the whole story" about the state, its diverse cultural heritage, and its involvement in regional, national, and global issues.

The Center offers students, educators, researchers, and the local and state-wide community opportunities to examine various aspects of Georgia culture and history through conferences and symposiums, educational activities, course curricula, publications, and research that encourages a critical re-thinking of Georgia by the public and scholars alike. The Center for Georgia Studies serves as an arena for discovering and presenting "the whole story" of Georgia, one that goes beyond stereotypical and one-dimensional representations of the state.
