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 environmental justice, art and activism, gentrification, public schools, and so forth.
Read about our city by browsing this collection of books, chapters, essays in edited collections, peer-reviewed articles, dissertations and theses about Atlanta gathered by our editorial staff with some crowd-sourced help from our followers on Twitter and Facebook.
