DiSC is excited to be sponsoring this opportnity for scholars who study Atlanta to present their work and see the work their peers are doing.
Emory University’s Digital Scholarship Commons is excited to invite proposals for presentations at the First Annual Atlanta Studies Symposium. The day-long symposium will be held on April 26, 2013 in Emory’s Robert W. Woodruff Library.
The symposium seeks to convene an interdisciplinary meeting of scholars and community activists concerned with issues related to Atlanta. We are also eager to highlight the the wealth of resources available at area libraries and museums and to enhance connections between scholars, institutions, and libraries.
Some potential themes for presentation topics include (but are not limited to):
- Population and Place
- Metropolitan Ecologies
Proposals for papers, talks, or round-table discussions should be no more than 400 words. Proposals on any aspect of Atlanta are welcome, but priority will be given to papers that relate in some way to the themes listed above. Preference will also be given to proposals for fully constituted panels. Cover letters for panels should indicate the theme and identify the panel’s participants. We are eager to make this event as engaging as possible and encourage presentations that represent work-in-progress that would benefit from open conversation. Please include audio-video requirements in your proposal.
Please send proposal via email to email@example.com by 5pm on February 15. Contact Stewart Varner (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
