SYLLABUS: Metropolitan Atlanta


This upper level undergraduate/graduate level interdisciplinary course engages with a range of research and analytic methods for studying and understanding the Metropolitan Atlanta region – its rich history, as well as its current achievements and challenges. Subjects of interest include the 1906 Race Riot, suburbanization, urban renewal, and Atlanta’s immigrant communities in the past and present. The final project involves a multidisciplinary, student-led research deep-dive into the area around Georgia State University: downtown Atlanta, and the blocks surrounding Georgia State Stadium.
