Urban History Association (UHA)
New York City, NY
26-28 October, 2012

Deadline: 17 February, 2012

This panel seeks a contributor to complement three graduate students
presenting papers on city planning and architecture in postwar cities in
the U.S., Latin America, and Europe/Soviet Union, respectively. We welcome
projects on any geographic region, but are particularly interested in
projects in Africa, South Asia, or East Asia that might contribute to the
global reach of the panel. Our papers will examine multinational
collaboration among built environment professionals in addressing rapid
urbanization along the US-Mexico border, in urban transportation networks
of three Latin American cities (Santiago, Sao Paulo, and Mexico City), and
in rebuilding the urban landscape of postwar Europe. How did competing
socialist and capitalist politics materialize in planning and building the
postwar urban environment?

If interested, please send a message and paper description to , and/or .The
panel submission deadline is March 2; we ask that interested persons please
contact us by February 17th.
