The McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives has created a new Web site, the MHC Global Research Series, to collect and disseminate scholarly research by College faculty on international and global issues (see link below). McCulloch Center director Eva Paus said that the center’s faculty advisory board enthusiastically supported the idea as a way to bring together the wide array of research undertaken by the MHC faculty in the area of international and global studies.
Research entries will be organized under seven rubrics--including health and environment; governance and power; and capitalism, inequality, and poverty--in a working paper series and as announcements of published research.
According to Paus, the research series has several goals. First, the series is intended to enhance faculty’s knowledge of colleagues’ work in related areas, which might lead to greater collaboration. The series is also meant to inform students about faculty research so that they can choose appropriate faculty with whom to work. Paus hopes that the series “will highlight to the rest of the world the breadth of MHC faculty’s research on international and global themes, and also provide an institutionalized venue for making the information available to a broad audience.”
Paus encourages Mount Holyoke faculty to participate in the new endeavor, and hopes that everyone in the Mount Holyoke community and beyond will sign up on the subscription form to receive notice of new additions to the series.
