Call for Papers: THE COSMOPOLITAN METROPOLIS: Sixth Biennial Urban History Association Conference

Sixth Biennial Urban History Association Conference
New York City
October 26-28, 2012

 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 on October 26-28, 2012.  The UHA Program is pleased to announce that Columbia University will serve as the local host for this year’s conference.
 In particular, we encourage papers that 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.  We seek contributions that pertain to all types of metropolitan history not only in North America but in Latin America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa.  Sessions on ancient and pre-modern as well as modern periods are welcome.  Graduate student submissions are encouraged. 
 We prefer complete panels but 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.  E-mail submissions by March 15, 2012 to Janet R. Bednarek at  Submissions should be included in attachments as either Word (2003 or 2007) or Word Perfect documents.
