Atlanta Studies

Atlanta Studies

Project Overview

Atlanta Studies is an open access, digital publication that features work from the scholars, writers, artists, and activists who are writing the next chapters in the 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 through both long-form articles and shorter blog posts. In managing a digital journal and blog, we aim to maximize the strengths of multimedia publishing.

Guided by an editorial board whose members span a wide range of Atlanta-area institutions, Atlanta Studies is housed at and published by the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS).
