The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) invites proposals for papers and paper sessions for its eleventh biennial meeting to be held in Coral Gables, Fl., October 20-23, 2005.
SACRPH is an interdisciplinary organization of scholars and practitioners based in such diverse fields as history, architecture, landscape architecture, planning, historic preservation, and the social sciences. Its conference showcases studies of the past, present, and future of purposeful efforts to shape urban life. The keynote speaker at Coral Gables will be David G. Gutierrez (UCSD) author of Walls and Mirrors: Mexican Americans, Mexican Immigrants, and the Politics of Ethnicity.
Papers are cordially invited on all aspects of urban, regional and community planning history. Particularly welcome are papers or complete sessions addressing Miami or Florida; economic restructuring and globalization; colonial and post-colonial planning; immigration and demographic dynamism; planning in and with diverse communities; and comparative examinations that consider race, class, gender and sexuality in planning. Papers presented at the conference will be considered for the Francois Auguste de Montequin Prize (best paper in North American colonial planning history) and a Student Research Prize.
The program committee welcomes proposals for either individual papers or entire sessions of two or three papers with comment. Submissions must include the following materials:
a one-page abstract of each paper, clearly marked with title and participant's name
