The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) invites papers and session proposals for its tenth biennial meeting, to be held in St. Louis, November 6-9, 2003. SACRPH is an interdisciplinary organization of scholars and practitioners based in such diverse fields as history, architecture, landscape, planning, and the social sciences. Its conference is dedicated to the examination of the past, present, and future of purposeful efforts to shape urban life.
Papers are cordially invited on all aspects of urban, regional and community planning. Particularly welcome are papers or complete sessions dealing with the St. Louis metropolitan area or the midwestern region, comparative studies in planning history, responses to economic restructuring and globalization, and analyses of race, class, gender and sexuality in planning. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the conference, SACRPH also invites papers dealing with all aspects of the relation between planning practice and planning history scholarship.
The program committee welcomes proposals for either individual papers or whole sessions of two to three papers with comment. Submissions must include 3 copies of the following materials:
a one-page abstract of each paper, clearly marked with title and participant's name
a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant, including address, telephone, and e-mail information
