Rockefeller Foundation Grant Helps Emory Establish Cape Town-Atlanta Program

The Rockefeller Foundation has given $550,000 to Emory University which, supplemented by university funding, has enabled the university to establish Institutions of Public Culture: A Collaborative Cape Town-Atlanta Program (2000-2003).

Through this program, Emory will work with South African cultural institutions to bring together scholars of public culture (from universities, museums, NGOs, political and arts organizations, etc.) to help form new cultural relationships in post-apartheid South Africa. Five research and students fellows from South African institutions are at Emory this spring to study and to work with peers at Atlanta and other U.S. institutions. The Atlanta History Center and Smithsonian Institution also are involved in the program.

The program is lead by Ivan Karp, director of Emory's Center for Study of Public Scholarship) and Emory Africanist Cory Kratz . The comprehensive program has many elements with Emory-Atlanta ties. For more information, go to:
