The Georgia Tech School of City & Regional Planning, in conjuction with the Federal Reserve Bank of AtlantaEmory University’s Center for Digital Scholarship the Urban Studies Institute and the Department of History at Georgia State University, are proud to sponsor the 6th Annual Atlanta Studies Symposium, which will be hosted at the Woodruff Library at Emory University on Friday, April 20, 2018.

This year's Symposium will focus on Atlanta in the context of projected regional growth and historical  legacies across spatial and cultural boundaries. The questions it will pose: 

  • How has the distribution of people, housing, jobs, and transit shifted in the Atlanta region over time, and what factors have driven these shifts?
  • How can we plan for equitable regional growth?
  • How do racial, class, jurisdictional, environmental, and other boundaries impact Atlanta’s development and cultural landscape across the region?
  • How and why have the borders and geography of the City of Atlanta and Atlanta region changed over time, and what have been the effects of these changes?
  • How have literary texts and audiovisual arts in Atlanta captured and responded to these changes?

The Symposium is currently accepting session proposals on these topics. Please submit abstracts no later than January 16, 2018. For more information on guidelines and to submit your proposal visit the website
