Atlanta Studies Symposium
Each spring the Atlanta Studies Network hosts an annual symposium that tackles the social, cultural, environmental, and economic issues facing Atlanta. The sixth annual Atlanta Studies Symposium was held at the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University on April 20, 2018. The theme of the 2018 symposium was “Atlanta: City + Region.” Sponsors of the event include the Center for Digital Scholarship, the James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference, the Bill & Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry, the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library, and the Office of Government and Community Affairs at Emory University, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the School of City and Regional Planning at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the Urban Studies Institute and the Department of History at Georgia State University.
Urban Studies Institute’s Dr. Addie was a chair/organizer for this year’s symposium. As well, Dr. Immergluck presented his piece “Renting the Dream: The Rise of the Single Family Rentership in the Sunbelt Metropolis.”
