BRAMS Friends



The basic components of any relationship are founded in friendship. When co-workers befriend this improves the results of all projects they are involved in. The development of good relationships in the workplace not only increases the value of the final product but also makes the research process more fun for the team. While amiable colleagues are vital, any institution needs friends from outside its environment.

BRAMS Institute has very important people in its academic life who challenge us, sometimes even unintentionally and help us grow through each year of our existence. They influence our value system. A recent Harvard study concluded that friends even help promote brain health. The people BRAMS Institute brings into its life as friends may live in different parts of the world; some of them have already passed away but left the legacy big enough to still influence our development.

We appreciate our dear friends and thus, proudly introduce them to you!

The veneration of people who once played a significant role in any country's cultural, political or any other side of life, seems to be one of the basic directions any institution is supposed to move towards. The concept of veneration of the dead is based on respect and appreciation of those who have left an important trail in history with their professional or personal actions.

BRAMS Institute considers its obligation to remember the deceased who played a small or big part in British, American and Georgian studies as well as linking these different cultures to each other in any way, and introduce their names and brief biographies to the new generations.

The 12th-century poet Shota Rustaveli wisely mentions that 'It will not hurt if we never forget our well-wishers' („არ-დავიწყება მოყვრისა აროდეს გვიზამს ზიანსა“). Therefore, we proudly recall the people closely connected to the mission of our Institute. These are roots where BRAMS Institute grows further.
