I am the Director of the Center for the Study of Social Dynamics housed in the Department of Sociology at the University of West Georgia. The lab is a shared resource that facilitates independent and collaborative research of social science faculty and students, including testing instruments for data collection, recording interviews, mediating focus groups, and conducting experiments. The lab also supports sociology faculty in teaching experimental and qualitative methods courses. And, the facility supports local non-profit agencies that require research assistance.
The Center will soon unveil a peer-reviewed journal that will feature the research of social scientists from all over the state of Georgia. Studies in the Social Sciences aims to publish the work of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students operating in the University System of Georgia (USG). A call for papers will be sent soon.
