NCPH 2023, with the theme “To Be Determined,” was held in Atlanta, Georgia, April 12-15, 2023. In conjunction with the conference, the editors of The Public Historian curated a list of previously published articles that focus in some way on the Gate City or on Georgia. The articles below include research articles and Reports from the Field, and examine topics such as centering race in house museums, rethinking historic markers, and reckoning with the legacy of slavery at universities. We hope that these articles will continue open up further conversations moving forward.
