Research in the Raw featuring Dr. Jennie Burnet

Research in the Raw is a speaker series to introduce the broader Georgia State University community to research being conducted by faculty on the Georgia State University campus.

This popular discussion series, in which GSU faculty members informally share work-in-progress has an exciting lineup for the Fall semester.

September 25 - Dr. Fred Brooks (Social Work)

October 22 - Dr. Jennie Burnet (Anthropology & Global Studies) 

Twenty-five years ago, 800,000 Rwandans lost their lives in a genocide that targeted the Tutsi ethnic group. In the midst of this horror, some courageous Rwandans risked their lives to save others. Why do some people join in mass violence while others oppose it? Dr. Jennie Burnet will share insights from her current research on rescuers in the Rwandan genocide. Dr. Burnet is an associate professor of Global Studies and Anthropology and serves as Associate Director of the Global Studies Institute. She is currently writing a book, To Save Heaven and Earth: Rescue during the Rwandan Genocide, which examines how and why some Rwandans risked their lives to save Tutsi from the carnage.
