On Tuesday, March 28, 2017 in the Jones Room (3rd floor) of the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University, the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship, in collaboration with the Emory Center for Faculty Development and Excellence and The Bill & Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry will host a discussion of the research platforms, projects, and publications about Atlanta that are currently facilitated by the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship. Lunch will be provided.
This event will begin with presentations on two exciting digital platforms for Atlanta-based research that Emory has helped develop in cooperation with GSU: ATLmaps and Unpacking Manuel’s Tavern.

Finally, the event will conclude with a roundtable about the local context for digital scholarly publishing. This roundtable will be moderated by Allison Adams (CFDE) and will feature the following participants:
