The UNCG Atlantic World Research Network (AWRN) fosters campus-wide interdisciplinary research, teaching, and creative work that reflects on the peoples, cultures, and ecologies of the “Atlantic Rim”—Africa, Europe, and the Americas. The Network provides leadership in transatlantic studies not only at UNCG and around our region, but around the Atlantic Rim and around the world. With partners from Britain, Spain and Brazil to Italy, France and Denmark, and from the Folger Institute on Capitol Hill to the US English-Speaking Union in Manhattan, this far-flung interdisciplinary network embraces Atlantic World work in the Humanities, Arts, Sciences, and Social Sciences.
The Folger Institute is a center for research in early modern humanities at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Through its cross-disciplinary conversations, the Institute gathers scholarly communities to stimulate fresh research in the Library collections and establish new teaching agendas for early modern fields.

The mission of our Writing Center is to connect writers with readers. This helps to make good writers better writers, and encourages all writers to develop an awareness of themselves that will help them after they leave their session. We provide one-on-one, real-time feedback to any UNCG student, faculty, or staff member at any point in the writing process. We are happy to work face to face or online with writers working on any type of written project.
