Social Science History Association's Urban Network would like to encourage submissions for the 35th Annual Meeting. The Urban Network would like to encourage paper and panels that consider labor issue, Shelter, Order, and Food, Planning Ideology, Ancient City, African-American Urban Experience, Historical Trajectory of the Ghetto, Real Estate Markets and History, informal urban institutions, Jobs, Policy, and Urban Visual Culture, and Planning Practice. The 2010 conference will be held in downtown Chicago, in the Palmer House Hilton. Chicago has served as a stage for some of America’s most memorable political events and has a rich history as a site of civil rights, labor, feminist, anti-war, student and other social movement organizing; many are fascinated by its municipal politics, its role in national partisan battles, and its emergence as one of North America’s global cities. Thus, we also encourage panels and papers organized around Chicago themes. As ever, papers and panels on themes not related to the conference theme are also welcome.
Conference submissions are now being accepted. Individuals may either login to submit a conference proposal directly, or contact the Urban Network co-chairs Julian C. Chambliss or Michael McQuarrie for further assistance. Individuals that are new to SSHA will need to create an account prior to using the online submission site. Paper and panel proposal require title, abstract, and contact information (address, phone number, and email) for each author. Panel proposals should include a panel title, paper titles and abstracts, and contact information for each panel participant.
