Second Annual Atlanta Global Studies Symposium


Because of the challenges in planning and preparation that have resulted from recent developments related to the coronavirus, and in an abundance of caution, we have decided that it will not be possible to hold the Second Annual Atlanta Global Studies Symposium, which was scheduled to take place April 23-25, 2020.

The Atlanta Global Studies Center will continue to offer opportunities to stay connected despite existing challenges. We will work with our symposium speakers and session organizers to develop stand-alone workshops, panels, and forums on important global topics throughout the upcoming year. Please stay tuned and check our events calendar regularly for more details.

The Second Atlanta Global Studies Symposium will be rescheduled for April 22-24, 2021. 

We are deeply disappointed that we will be unable to see you in person this April, but we look forward to bringing our global community together in new and innovative ways!
