Here at Atlanta Studies we’re interested in scholarship on every aspect of the city, region, and its history – including writing published elsewhere.
In this blog post we’re highlighting new scholarship on Atlanta that was published in 2019 on topics ranging from the history of the Gulch to the equity issues around our city’s tree canopy.
Read up on our city by browsing this collection of books, essays in edited collections, and peer reviewed articles about Atlanta gathered by our editorial staff with some crowd-sourced help from our followers on Twitter and Facebook.
