Biographical Information

Katie Marages is an Assistant Professor in the College of Environment and Design. Dr. Marages' research focuses on the relationship between architecture, housing policy, race, and visual culture, especially in the context of public housing in Atlanta. While focused on Atlanta, she seeks to address larger questions about how visual rhetoric works as agents in urban politics and in understandings of race. In addition, Dr. Marages has extensive experience in public history and oral history and has worked in collaboration with organizations such as the Atlanta History Center. Currently, she is recording the stories of myriad individuals who helped move the Atlanta BeltLine, a complex urban planning project, from concept to reality. Her teaching incorporates primary documents, site visits, and public scholarship as much as possible. In addition to her research and teaching, Dr. Marages serves as Director of the College of Environment and Design’s Circle Gallery.
