Seventh Annual Atlanta Studies Symposium

Please join us on April 9, 2019 for the seventh annual Atlanta Studies Symposium, which will be hosted by the Georgia Institute of Technology and held at the Academy of Medicine (875 West Peachtree St., NW). In keeping with this year’s theme, “Atlanta in the Anthropocene: The Making of a Resilient, Resourceful City,” the symposium will bring together scholars from across the region to discuss Atlanta’s role in climate mitigation, and how Atlanta might respond to coming challenges. The symposium will also feature keynote addresses from J. Marshall Shepherd (University of Georgia) and Bartow Elmore (Ohio State University). See the full schedule of presentations by following the link. 

The Atlanta Studies Symposium is free and open to the public, however, we request that you register in advance so that we can accurately gauge seating and food needs.
