The conference, which will take place April 12-14, 2007, explores the history of non-metropolitan urban settings. It features papers that deal with the history of small cities during the early modern or modern eras in both western and non-western contexts. In bringing a diverse range of scholars together, the conference provides an opportunity to compare approaches, methods, and sources. Panelist seek to explore the distinctive experiences of small-city life across time and space, to consider the development of secondary urban centers in different historical contexts, and to define further the history of small cities as a distinctive subject of inquiry within the larger field of urban studies. To facilitate discussion, papers will be made available in advance to conference participants. Preregistration deadline is March 30, 2007.
