Here at Atlanta Studies we are interested in scholarship on every aspect of the city, region, and its history – including writing published elsewhere.
In this blog post we highlight new scholarship on Atlanta that was published last year on topics ranging from the city’s memorialization of the Civil War to Atlanta’s LGBT communities and televisual drag scene.
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.
