Georgia Tech, French Consulate team up for suburban symposium

External News Details

Georgia Tech's College of Architecture and the Consulate General of France this weekend will host "Outer City/Inner Suburb: The Physical, Social and Cultural Fabric Beyond the Center," a symposium of discussions, presentations, and films that will compare the suburbs (or "banlieues") of France and Atlanta. Remember the media frenzy over French race riots in 2005? The social conditions of France's diverse and oftentimes disadvantaged suburban communities have made them infamous for civil unrest, and will be the focus of this weekend-long scholarly soiree. Additional attention will be paid to civil issues facing Atlanta's own suburbs.
