The Office of Faculty Affairs is pleased to announce that two Georgia State University faculty have been awarded the Provost’s Study in a Second Discipline Fellowship to support the extension of their research and creative activity into new disciplines during the 2018-19 academic year:
College of Law
Professor Tucker will work with colleagues in the Robinson College of Business Institute for Insight to develop the potential of its Legal Analytics Lab to create a nationally recognized research program in legal analytics using data science methodologies. The fellowship will support her work on integrating algorithms and machine learning tools into contract coding and new research on mutual fund risk disclosures. She will also work with colleagues on related curricular development, including blended courses in law and data science, and prepare a proposal for the National Science Foundation Law and Social Science grant program.
Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design
Professor Stanford will work with colleagues in the Global Studies Institute as she extends her artistic exploration of collective traumas into scholarship. Focusing on the area of African Studies, Stanford will extend her initial research on the function and diversity of public memorials in South Africa, Kenya, and Rwanda. Collaborating with Dr. Jennie Burnet, Stanford will examine the long history of memorial production in Africa that has to date received relatively little scholarly attention. To extend her work, Stanford will also prepare proposals for external funding through programs such as the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council for Learned Societies.
