Atlanta Studies is an open access, digital publication of the Atlanta Studies Network that features work from scholars, writers, artists, and activists who are writing the next chapters in our city’s story. Examining Atlanta from a wide range of perspectives, we offer thoughtful analyses of the metro region’s past and present for a public audience. We aim to be critical when addressing Atlanta’s problems and a tad boosterish when assessing its possibilities. 

  • Learning Our Lessons: Civics Education, Urban Planning, and Race in Postwar Atlanta

  • THE TIE THAT BINDS: WHITE CHURCH RESPONSE TO NEIGHBORHOOD RACIAL CHANGE IN ATLANTA, 1960–1985

  • POWER AND PLACE-NAMING: THE STRUGGLE FOR A NEW URBAN ORDER IN MIDTOWN, 1870–1970

  • Creating Greater Atlanta: Tom Wolfe's A Man In Full, Twenty Years On

  • Black Women Politicians in the Archives: Introducing the Grace Towns Hamilton papers

We believe a city is no better than its scholarship, and we hope you’ll tune in and take part.
