This conference will investigate the history of urban futures across many time periods in several Metropolitan areas and countries. The Program Committee is seeking submissions for panels, roundtables, and individual papers on all aspects on urban, suburban, and metropolitan history. The Committee is requesting sessions on the host city, Las Vegas, focusing on its history of rapid, expansive growth. Other sessions on the history of urbanization in North America and other continents in ancient, pre-modern and modern periods are also welcome. Sessions should address questions on land use, energy, space, place, the built environment, and the natural environment from a historical perspective.
Preference will be given to complete panels. All types of historical analyses are encouraged including: qualitative research on urban history and social sciences; digital humanities; race, gender, class and space; architecture, environment, technology, and science; historic preservation; and classic works of urban and suburban history.
