This upper level undergraduate and graduate level interdisciplinary course uses the concepts and perspectives of a range of scholarly disciplines to think about the urban environment in general, and the Atlanta metropolitan area in particular. In addition to thinking about our city’s history, social geography, and built environment, the course spends significant time and energy thinking about research methods, with particular focus on historical research and analysis.
