Atlanta Studies Network

The Atlanta Studies Network is an interdisciplinary group of researchers, students, and instructors across area institutions including Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Clark Atlanta University, Kennesaw State University, the Atlanta History Center, and the New Georgia Encyclopedia. In addition to publishing Atlanta Studies, for the past five years the Atlanta Studies Network has hosted an annual symposium each spring that is free and open to the public. The Network also hosts quarterly meetups at Manuel’s Tavern. Finally, a number of innovative cross-institutional projects about Atlanta have arisen from collaborations in the Network, such as those highlighted below.
