What is Social Studies? It’s a down-and-dirty diatribe on the state of this here city. It’s a conversation series designed to make some noise and simultaneously cut through it. It’s an attempt to pull at the cultural, political, and economic threads shaping Atlanta's future. It’s intellectual and intersectional. And, most importantly, it’s very necessary. A collaboration between Creative Loafing and the Center for Civic Innovation, Social Studies is a free monthly convo series to engage the public around current issues.
