At the Urban History Association Meeting

Posting’s been light lately because I’ve been preparing for this conference, and specifically for this panel (link to program .pdf):

Places, Pasts and Policies: Asserting History’s Role in Urban Studies

Chair and Comment: Richard Harris, McMaster University

Christopher Bonastia, Lehman College and CUNY Graduate Center

Urban Studies in Historical Context: The Case of School Desegregation

Andrew Highsmith, University of Texas at San Antonio

Ghetto Suburb: Federal Policies and the Transformation of Beecher, Michigan

Michan Connor, James Weldon Johnson Institute, Emory University

Fulton and Milton: Voting Rights, Metropolitan Inequality, and the Political Spaces of “Color-Blind” Racism

Guian McKee, University of Virginia

The Urban History of Health Care Policy: Baltimore’s Health Care Industry and the Costs of History’s Exclusion from the Social Sciences

I’m excited to have Professor Harris commenting, since his article “The History in Urban Studies” (with Michael Smith in the Journal of Urban Affairs) was my primary provocation to organize the panel, and I’m also very intrigued by the other papers.
