Authors Amplified with Global Atlanta

Georgia’s deep pool of international expertise is sometimes hidden in the ivory towers of academia or overshadowed by looming national figures. Sought-after thought leaders sometimes shine globally while being ignored in their own backyard.

With Authors Amplified, a monthly series of book talks, we showcase authoritative local voices in foreign affairs and international business while highlighting the state’s intellectual contributions to important global conversations.

The Atlanta Global Studies Center is proud to partner with Global Atlanta to present this series.

GCIV/FPA Great Decisions

AGSC partners with the Georgia Council for International Visitors (GCIV) who serves as the statewide coordinator for the Foreign Policy Association’s (FPA) Great Decisions program by helping facilitate discussion groups and lecture series that give participants the opportunity to expand their understanding of world affairs.

Topics change annually and are based on the Foreign Policy Association’s nonpartisan briefing book.

Global Media Fest

An annual documentary film festival focused on sustainability across languages and cultures through film screenings, roundtables, class visits and curriculum design. This series is produced by the faculty from the School of Modern Language and various collaborators. The goals of this festival are to promote awareness of diverse viewpoints, needs, and strategies related to sustainability; create new connections with sustainability-focused community and organizations worldwide; develop K-12 and college-level educational modules; promote Georgia Tech’s strategic plan to educate “good global citizens”; promote understanding and pursuit of the UN Sustainable Development Goals; and inspire attendees to critically engage with sustainability issues both globally and locally in order to better effect meaningful change.
