Social Change and Negro-White Relations

Development of interrrelated MA and PhD programs in American Studies (with a focus on Negro-White realions in an urban context) at Emory and Atlanta Universities. ABSTRACT: Development of new inter-institutional programs between Atlanta and Emory Universities. Emory is developing a new curriculum, within its on-going American Studies PhD program, centered on social change in an urban context, with the focus on Negro-White relationships, interactions and polarization. Atlanta to develop MA program in American Studies and hopes eventually to establish a PhD curriculum in American Studies parallel to that of the new Emory program. Until Atlanta establishes its projected PhD program, its MA students will normally enter the new Emory doctoral program after their first year of graduate study. Both programs depend on close inter-institutional cooperation, pooling resources rather than duplicating each other. Three joint faculty appointments (in such areas as history, anthropology, sociology, political science, economics, literature and language). Approximately 1/3 of the time of students in the 3rd year of the new doctoral curriculum will be committed to teaching in the Atlanta area, in either a predominantly Negro college or a predominantly white college in the process of racial integration. Funds for faculty salaries, travel, student stipends.
