CSPS at Emory University
The Center for the Study of Public Scholarship (CSPS) is a research center in Emory College. The CSPS hosts fellows and visiting scholars, organizes programs, coordinates interdisciplinary working groups, and promotes public scholarship at Emory and in the Atlanta community. Programs organized by the CSPS are both thematic and individual events and can range from year-long series, such as the "Emergent Illnesses, Public Scholarship" theme year, to panel discussions, lectures, and debates with visiting scholars. The CSPS organizes a series of Grant Writing Workshops for graduate students and faculty; it has also administered internship programs for graduate students. From 1997 to 2000, the CSPS was the site of a Rockefeller Foundation Arts and Humanities Fellowship program on Institutions of Public Culture. Since 2000, the Institutions of Public Culture program has continued through linked programs with academic and arts institutions in Cape Town, South Africa. The CSPS also serves as Emory's liaison to Imagining America, a national consortium of colleges and universities committed to public scholarship in the arts, humanities, and design.
