I hope this email finds you well. I am writing as a member of the Program Committee for the Urban History Association (UHA) to invite you to organize a session at our next meeting in Columbia, South Carolina on October 18-21, 2018.
While this association began as a historical conference, we have expanded to include scholars in other fields and disciplines. We seek to demonstrate that urban history, as both discipline and organization, can apply to scholars who study cities, politics, urban culture, and other urban topics in the past.
Our theme for the 2018 meeting is “City at the Crossroads” to explore the role of cities as meeting places, and the contemporary challenges of urban political isolation over issues such as climate change, immigration, and inequality.
Our call for papers will go out soon. At the moment, the UHA Program Committee wishes to assess the interest of your organization and/or your members on organizing a session. Please feel free to circulate this email to your members.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and have a great fall semester.
