Invitation

You are invited to take part in the sixth international conference of the
European Association of Urban Historians. This bi annual conference
provides a forum for historians, sociologists, anthropologists, planners
and urbanists working on all aspects of urban history. The title of the
conference celebrates that fact that Edinburgh was an innovative centre of
enlightenment thinking in the 18th century and in the 21st century has
become again the base for its own parliament. This title is designed to
invite proposals for papers and sessions on the widest range of topics =F1
built environment, governance, population, social relationships, economy
and culture. We invite proposals from all periods of history and from the
widest geographical range. The invitation is extended to all who have made
urban history a distinctive and innovative subject, - historians,
geographers, planners, urbanists and those involved in conservation, policy
studies, recording, archive and museum work.

Participants are invited from all over Europe and beyond.
