European Association for Urban History

The European Association for Urban History (EAUH) provides a multidisciplinary forum for historians, geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, art and architectural historians, planners and other scholars working on various aspects of urban history from the middle ages until the present.

Every two years, the EAUH organizes a large-scale international conference, at which European and non-European scholars discuss new directions in the field, conduct and stimulate comparative research, and initiate future collaborative projects and publications.

CityLAB IX: Cities and states: exploring a complicated relationship II 10-14 july 2023, UAntwerp, City campus

Come and explore the complicated relationship between cities and states, now and in the past! In this CityLAB, a range of scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and focussing on cities and states in the North as well as the South will introduce you to their research. You will also hear from urban professionals and high profile urban politicians how they see the current position of cities in relation to national states and have the opportunity to discuss your research with other participants and senior scholars. If you are interested in how cities and states differ (or have differed) in the way they govern societies and with which impact on social inequality, power relations, ecological conditions and living in diversity, you should definitively consider applying to our summer school. Find out more.

The application deadline is 30 April 2023.
