European Association for Urban History (EAUH) 2024 - Cities at the Boundaries
It is a great privilege to inform you that the sixteenth conference of the European Association for Urban History (EAUH) will take place in Ostrava, Czech Republic from 4 to 7 September 2024.
The Local Organizing Committee is pleased to host the interdisciplinary EAUH 2024 Conference and to follow up on the highly successful 15th EAUH Conference in Antwerp.
In 2024 the theme of the European Association for Urban History Conference is going to be “Cities at the Boundaries”, however the EAUH 2024 Conference will be also open for all topics and research aspects from the field of urban history.
Therefore, the European Association for Urban History invites scholars to discuss both the boundaries of social and economic development related to cities and urban agglomeration, as well as a wide array of topics related to cities which lay on geographic-, state-, as well as other borders. The EAUH 2024 specifically welcomes all topics related to the environmental problems and sustainable development of cities, such as post-industrial transformation, modernization of public infrastructure, and social housing.
The EAUH 2024 conference is also a great opportunity to discuss the current topics of cultural-, and industrial heritage as well as its preservation and the renewal of cities, for example the impact of structural change and armed conflicts. The Local Organizing Committee would also like to invite historians of medieval-, and modern urban history to discuss current themes via the use of multidisciplinary and comparative approaches.
In 2012 Prague hosted an EAUH Conference for the first time in the Czech Republic. Thus, it is the privilege of the city of Ostrava and the University of Ostrava to be the second host for an EAUH Conference in Czechia.
