Spring 2018 issue of the Journal of Global South Studies published

The Spring 2018 issue of the Journal of Global South Studies was recently published. The issue includes pieces such as “The Dictator and the Mafia: How Rafael Trujillo Partnered with US Criminals to Extend His Power” and “Livestock and Livelihoods in Urban Niger,” as well as numerous book reviews. Former GSW history department chair Gary Kline serves as the Journal’s editor.

In his Foreword and Message from the Editor for this issue, Kline thanked GSW for its support of the Journal.

“We also wish to thank Georgia Southwestern State University and the GSW Foundation for their continuing financial support for our journal,” wrote Kline. “As our home institution, their commitment has both material and spiritual importance to us.”

The Journal is published bi-annually by Association of Global South Studies (AGSS), formerly known as the Association of Third World Studies (ATWS). AGSS was created and developed by the late Harold Isaacs, Ph.D., who was a professor of Latin American history at GSW for many years.

The Spring 2018 issue is available online. For more information, visit the AGSS website.

Caregiving study by Easom and Cotter published in nursing journal

Leisa Easom, Ph.D., RN, and Ellen Cotter, Ph.D., recently had a study published in the Journal of Gerontological Nursing. The study, “Comparison of African American and Caucasian Caregiver Self-Efficacy,” explored the changes in caregivers’ belief in their ability before and after participating in a caregiving program. They focused more specifically on the comparison of African American and Caucasian populations to better understand the resources and needs of different groups.

Easom is the new associate dean of GSW’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences and the former executive director of the Rosalynn Carter Institute (RCI). Cotter is a professor of psychology in GSW’s Department of Psychology and Sociology.

Angel Ramos, MBA, research coordinator at the University of Central Florida’s Marriage & Family Research Institute was also part of the study.
