Rethinking Equity in Atlanta
 

APRIL 26TH, 2017
WOODRUFF LIBRARY, ATLANTA UNIVERSITY CENTER
ATLANTA, GA
 

Though the city of Atlanta continues to thrive, as it has for the past century and a half, social stratification and inequality has remained a persistent part of its urban fabric throughout. For the fifth annual Atlanta Studies Symposium, to be held at the Woodruff Library of the Atlanta University Center on April 26, 2017, we invite academics, citizens, and practitioners to investigate and explore past and present issues around equity and inclusion in the Atlanta metropolitan area.

This symposium poses the questions: How might we better understand the issues around equity that are specific to Atlanta? What are we talking about and not talking about, when we discuss equity in Atlanta? How might we design a future Atlanta that better serves all of its citizens?

The fifth annual Atlanta Studies Symposium will feature a keynote address from Professor Zandria Robinson of Rhodes College.

 

About Atlanta Studies

Atlanta Studies is an open access, digital publication 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 even be 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. We publish long form articles of up to 5,000 words (multimedia pieces encouraged) as well as shorter blog posts.

In collaboration with other educational and non-profit organizations, Atlanta Studies also co-sponsors an annual symposium each spring.
