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.

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