EAUH2022: Programme, registration and bursaries
The 15th EAUH Conference will be held from Wednesday 31 August – Saturday 3 September 2022, at the University of Antwerp
The EAUH conference tackles all disciplines and themes within urban history, but the central conference theme is ‘Inequality and the City’. Therefore, the European Association of Urban Historians invites all scholars to reflect on the complex relationship between social inequality and the city. While traditionally social inequality is a preferential playing field for economic and social historians, the conference’s main goal is to tackle this vast theme from a multi-dimensional perspective. Social inequality is not only mirrored but also wrought in forces as different as spatial dynamics, gender, race and class relations, demographic structures, housing and sanitary conditions, labour markets, social security systems, literacy and education, crime, public transport, ecological concerns and so on. This interconnectedness is the very essence of urban social inequality, and more often than not it is also closely linked to historical path-dependencies. Hence, in order to adequately address the historical relationship between (in)equality and the city, a perspective is needed that includes the social, political, cultural, economic conditions thereof across urban societies.
