The Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) extends the Graduate Center’s global reach and prominence as an international hub of advanced study. Specifically, ARC promotes interdisciplinary research and partners with the Graduate Center’s forty research centers, institutes, interdisciplinary committees, and other academic initiatives. Through its Distinguished Fellowship Program, a research-focused initiative, ARC will offer even more possibilities for collaboration between campus-based and Graduate Center faculty, in addition to visitors, doctoral students, and postdoctoral colleagues. Winners of these semester- or year-long fellowships will focus on ARC’s seven areas of study: Inequality, Immigration, Digital Initiatives, Transnational Non-state Actors, Human Ecodynamics, Urban Studies, and the Humanities. Further, ARC offers support in the shape of ARC Studentships in a wide variety of disciplines to Graduate Center doctoral students pursuing research as well as to postdoctoral students who have completed their initial projects.
ARC embraces the vital work of the Graduate Center’s eminent scholars, doctoral students, and research centers, which is the backbone of the Graduate Center’s international reputation. Those efforts energize the following seven areas of study.
Inequality: Research on the structural foundations of increasing inequality across our society and ways to mobilize communities around various alternatives.
Immigration: Interdisciplinary research on the social, cultural, and political impacts of international migration, with special attention on the role of immigration in New York City and comparative studies on how immigration and ethnic diversity are experienced in different nations.
Digital Initiatives: Research in a broad range of digital projects and digital resources, including data mining and the digital humanities.
Transnational Non-state Actors: The study of inter- and nongovernmental organizations, media, and corporations.
Human Ecodynamics Research: Examination of past and present global interactions between humans and the natural world, incorporating all disciplines.
Urban Studies: Critical issues facing large cities around the world and the role played therein by public, nonprofit, and business organizations.
The Humanities: Explores new interdisciplinary work by scholars, writers, and opinion shapers.
Please note that, in addition to ARC’s support of these seven research areas, essential work is under way in the Graduate Center’s interdisciplinary committees and initiatives.
