Introducing the Global Georgia Initiative

Beginning Spring semester 2013, the Willson Center will introduce the Global Georgia Initiative, a new series that brings world-class thinkers to Georgia. It presents global problems in local context by addressing pressing contemporary questions, including the economy, society, and the environment, with a focus on how the arts and humanities can intervene.
