Ellen Dunham-Jones, Professor of Architecture and Director of the Master of Science in Urban Design Program, was selected to present the Cliff Kuhn Memorial Keynote Lecture for the Atlanta Studies Symposium. Her lecture, entitled, “Retrofitting Suburban Atlanta in Response to Changing Demographics and Desires,” will focus on the changes in suburban planning.

“It’s both an exciting and a frightening prospect to share research on one’s hometown in one’s hometown,” said Jones. “Atlanta is full of examples of suburban retrofits and I won’t be able to point out the pros and cons of all of them – but I’m honored to try!”

The Atlanta Studies Symposium will be held on April 20, 2018 at Emory University’s Robert W. Woodruff Library. This year’s symposium focuses on the theme, “Atlanta: City + Region.” To see the official announcement from the Atlanta Studies, click here.
