UHA Urban History Association

The Program Committee seeks submissions for panels, roundtable discussions and individual papers on all aspects of urban, suburban, and metropolitan history for the Sixth Biennial Urban History Conference in New York City. The UHA Program is pleased to announce that Columbia University will serve as the local host for this year’s conference.
The papers have to explore the theme of the Cosmopolitan Metropolis. This encompasses issues of ethnic and social diversity and economic and cultural globalism in the richly varied metropolises of the United States and the world. The contributions have to pertain to all types of metropolitan history not only in North America but in Latin America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa.
• Complete panels and individual papers are also welcome.
• Please designate a single person to serve as a contact for all complete panels.
• For traditional panels, include a brief explanation of the overall theme, a one-page abstract of each paper, and a one or two page c.v. for each participant.
• Roundtable proposals should also designate a contact person and submit a one page theme synopsis and a one or two page c.v. for each presenter. All those submitting individual papers should include a one-page abstract and a one or two page c.v.
As part of the conference the UHA will organize workshops for graduate students writing dissertations in urban and suburban history. Students who have written a prospectus and who wish to participate in a workshop should apply with a two to four page letter of interest.
