Savannah professor wins grant to study plantations

Posted: Updated:

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A Savannah college professor has been awarded a $50,000 grant to study historic plantations across the Southeast.

Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah said Monday a National Science Foundation Grant was awarded to geography professor Amy Potter. The money will fund a three-year research project in which Potter plans to compare plantation cultures in coastal Georgia and South Carolina, Virginia and Louisiana.

Potter says the funding will allow for a student to travel with her to historic sites in the state for field work and data collection.

Potter's funding comes from a larger $445,000 grant awarded for collaborative research to several college professors in various Southern states.
