Professor Ruth Carter Presents at First Friday Faculty Colloquia
The February 2014 installment of First Friday Department of Government and Sociology Faculty Colloquia was held February 7, featuring Dr. Ruth Carter, Professor of International Studies. The subject of her presentation arose from the title of her research on a book, “Emma’s Journey: From Death Row to Redemption.” As part of her presentation, Dr. Carter introduced several guests, all women who had served time in prison, surviving and ultimately changing their lives. Included amongst the guests, was Emma Cunningham, the subject of Dr. Carter’s book. Dr. Carter chronicles Cunningham’s story, including her conviction, survival and redemption in prison and her life outside the criminal justice system.
The colloquia is a continuing series, sponsored by the Department of Government and Sociology and showcases the research of faculty. Past topics included Identity Politics, Mobilizing Structures, and the Effects of Policy Framings on Global AIDS Cooperation and Representative Bureaucracy: Exploring the Context. The next session is scheduled for March 7 and is titled Socioeconomic Environment, Fiscal Structure, and Government Financial Health: Evidence from Georgia Counties" by Dr. Min Kim, Assistant Professor of Public Administration.
