The Urban History Association invites submission of individual papers and panels for the Third Biennial Urban History Conference at the Memorial Union of Arizona State University on October 20-22, 2006. The central goal of the conference is to explore urbanism and urban regions in all their complexity across time and space.
Even though the conference deals with all urban topics, the committee is especially seeking proposals for papers and panels that have a comparative international framework or that place the study of urbanization in one country or a specific period within an international context or that have transnational implications.
The program committee welcomes proposals for either individual papers or entire sessions of 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; a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant, including address, telephone, and e-mail information. Submissions are due March 1, 2006 and should be sent with either an attached file (preferably Word) or with the text in an email message to: Janet.Bednarek@notes.udayton.edu.
On Thursday, October 20, from 4:00-6:00 p.m., the committee will organize workshops for graduate students writing dissertations in urban history. Each workshop will be composed of approximately 3-4 students and 2 faculty members. Participants will be expected to pre-circulate copies of their dissertation prospectuses to each other. Students who wish to participate in a workshop should apply by March 1, 2006 to: Janet.Bednarek@notes.udayton.edu.
