The city of Atlanta has its fair share of homeless people, most of whom are ignored by passersby and often the government. But what happens when cities consciously implement design to drive them away?

SPP professor Robert Rosenberger's article in The Atlantic discusses the issue.
Saying "you're not welcome here"—with spikes.

The EU is often depicted as a global regulatory power. But is this label misleading? Alasdair Young (INTA) has been published in the Journal of European Public Policy seeking to resolve the puzzle of
the EU’s poor performance in the setting of global food safety standards.

Check out similar research being conducted in the Center for European and Transatlantic Studies: bit.ly/alasdairCETS

Ivan Allen faculty react to the passing of Maya Angelou in the Georgia Tech Amplifier. Angelou visited Tech in 2007, urging students to not only become composers of their own lives but also to develop the courage to make an impact on the lives of others. http://bit.ly/GTreacts

With the passing of legendary American author and poet Maya Angelou today, IAC faculty and poets share their thoughts on the significance of her work and the legacy she leaves behind.

"What always impressed me most by Angelou's work was her ability to transcend the page. She didn't "read" her poems to people. She chanted. She danced. She sang. It was her strong sense of orality that gave such energy to her work, and it was that energy with which people connected." — Karen Head, LMC professor

Story

Innovation at the Crossroads of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Technology
Introduction
The liberal arts have been part of Georgia Tech since it opened its doors in 1888. We have since grown to prominence as one of the Institute’s six colleges. 

Research and education in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts bridge the traditional separation between engineering, science, and computing, and the humanities and social sciences. From this interdisciplinary crossroads, our faculty and students consider the human implications of technologies, policies, and actions, and create sustainable solutions for our world.

Our graduates are distinguished by their ability to navigate both technical and non-technical realms. They enter careers in government, business, public policy, international affairs, law, technology, and new media.

First formed as a college in 1948, Ivan Allen College was re-founded in 1990 in honor of former Atlanta mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor Allen was a transformational urban leader and a pivotal advocate for the advancement of civil rights in America. His humanitarian vision and social courage, and his commitment to social justice and ethically responsible civic leadership guide research and learning in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, and our engagement with the world around us.
