Shaw Chair

Center for Regional History and Culture at Kennesaw State University

Northwest Georgians have shared a unique historical odyssey, from the Mississippian culture of the Native Americans to the burgeoning carpet industry,  from cotton fields and cotton mills to Lake Allatoona and Lockheed Martin.  Yet the region - the area of the old Cherokee land lottery - remains one of the least-studied in the state.

The Center for Regional History & Culture was established in 1998 to promote a deeper understanding of the Northwest Georgia region.  Housed in the Department of History and Philosophy, the Center works closely with the Public History Program and the Shaw Chair in Southern Economic History.  With the help of respected faculty from across the campus, the Center conducts and encourages research on the history and culture of Northwest Georgia, gathers historical materials, provides public programs, and attempts to be a resource for area teachers, museums, and historical societies.
