Regular AJC Center programs include:
Faculty Research Seminars
The Cooper Center hosts a monthly seminar series for Piedmont-Triad area faculty members whose research and teaching interests focus on gender, race and politics in the South. The seminars are interdisciplinary and engage scholarship from multiple fields, perspectives and methodological approaches. Through the seminars, we hope to create a central meeting place for research and scholarly engagement with race, gender and politics while building cross-institutional support.
Each semester the AJC Center hires up to five undergraduate students from Wake Forest University as Research Fellows. Fellows complete 40 hours of focused research each month for a commitment of one semester. Their research contributes to upcoming scholarly publications, upcoming conferences, or AJC research initiatives. Fellows are paid a stipend for the semester and work closely with the AJC Center Executive Director Professor Melissa Harris-Perry and the AJC Center postdoctoral fellow.
