Professor George Contini was chosen (along with thirteen other UGA faculty members) for the UGA Special Collections Fellows Program. 

Fourteen University of Georgia faculty members will collaborate with UGA Libraries archivists this May to design learning opportunities for students using historical materials, as part of the 2021 Special Collections Libraries Fellows program.

From finance to film studies, the sixth cohort of the program reflects the broadest range of academic disciplines in the program’s history, reaching faculty from eight schools and colleges and 13 academic departments. The group exemplifies the wide range of materials that students and researchers can explore in the Libraries’ three special collections units.

“Participation in this program is a testament to our Fellows’ dedication to the craft of teaching,” said Toby Graham, university librarian and associate provost. “We look forward to working with this group of outstanding faculty members to design archives-centered courses that ignite students’ curiosity and strengthen their research and critical thinking skills.”
