Atlanta Studies Symposium: New Ways of Seeing the City
Friday, May 6th, 2022 (Knowles Conference Center, Georgia State University School of Law)
The pandemic has kept us at home, shifting our spatial imaginaries and how we experience the city. It has also shined a new light on the role of essential workers and those not privileged enough to work from home. As we come out of lockdown, there's an opportunity to see the city (past, present, and future) with new eyes. This could be a frame for thinking about novel methodologies to study Atlanta, a forum for exploring the diverse disciplinary perspectives that the Atlanta Studies Symposium brings together, as well as a loose umbrella that could bring together a variety of empirical studies, such as seeing from the perspective of marginalized communities/lost histories/stories from the periphery rather than the center.
