Fields of Study: Public History, Museum Studies, American Material Culture. Keri Adams' research interests focus on cultural and social history of the American South, including material culture, vernacular architecture, and the textile industry. Adams has curated exhibits and managed projects about west Georgia’s textile history, including wayside interpretive signage in Carrollton and Bremen and The West Georgia Textile Heritage Trail guidebook through Arcadia Publishing. Personal research includes conducting oral histories of Trappist monks (OCSO) and contextualizing the foundation of their Roman Catholic Cistercian monastery, the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, in mid-20th century rural Conyers, Georgia. Adams also provides consultation and serves as a docent to the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area Alliance's guided tour program with the Monastery of the Holy Spirit (Conyers).
