The Project

Since spring 2017, our blog has worked together closely with the Global Urban History Project, a meeting place for scholars interested in exploring the crossroads of urban history and global history.

The Project was formed by merging several already existing networks of scholars from a wide range of associations and from many parts of the world. By joining the Project as a member you can be part of an effort to expand these networks and join sustained conversations about the challenges we face in this exciting and growing hybrid field.

We encourage all our readers to join the the Global Urban History Project via its website. To learn more about the project, read the introductory post by Mariana Dantas (Ohio University), Michael Goebel (Freie Universität Berlin), Emma Hart (University of St. Andrews), Nancy Kwak (University of California, San Diego), Tracy Neumann (Wayne State University), Carl Nightingale (University at Buffalo, SUNY), and Joseph Ben Prestel (Freie Universität Berlin).
