CITY POLITICS, INTEREST GROUPS AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
Urban History Association (UHA)
New York City, NY
26-28 October, 2012
Deadline: 17 February, 2012
I am seeking contributors to a panel on urban politics in the twentieth
century. My paper will examine how business groups came to represent the
public interest in twentieth century Los Angeles, and how that affected
federal as well as local policies. I can this panel incorporating
additional studies of “special interests” — as in who is seen as
representing the general public as opposed to a special interest — or
studies of federal – local interactions.
If interested, please send a message and paper proposal to Sarah Elkind < firstname.lastname@example.org> by 17 February, 2012.
