Ramos Receives Public Impact Grant
College of Environment and Design Associate Professor Stephen Ramos received a Public Impact Grant from the Wilson Center for Humanities and Arts for his work with UGA Lamar Dodd School of Art Assistant Professor James A. Enos in support of the “Port Futures and Social Logistics” initiative in art and urbanism.
The grant will support creative programming and a research summit that uses port geography as a platform to explore materials, environmental histories, and infrastructure in relation to energy transition, climate and labor. Professors Ramos and Enos are both participants in the Port Journeys collective based in Yokohama, Japan, and Ramos is an international advisory board member for the Port City Futures, a collaborative research project among Leiden, Delft, and Erasmus universities in the Netherlands.
After receiving his Doctor in Design from Harvard Graduate School of Design in 2009, Professor Ramos took a position with the College of Environment and Design and teaches course in Urban Planning and Design. His research explores geographic and political issues concerning trade infrastructure. Last year, Professor Ramos was awarded the UGA Provost’s Office Study in a Second Discipline Fellowship for the Spring/Fall 2021 semesters for his research project, “Regional Praxis: Howard W. Odum, Planning, and the Southern Imaginary.” Ramos received generous support from the UGA Willson Center for Humanities & Arts as he developed the proposal.
