From its origins, the Urban History journal has been at the forefront of historical scholarship on the urban experience. It began with the work of H.J. Dyos and the founding of the British Urban History Group with its own Newsletter (1963) and Yearbook (1974). Now approaching its fiftieth anniversary, the Urban History journal publishes cutting-edge historical research on towns and cities across time periods and across the globe.


The goal of this anniversary conference is to take stock of urban history as a discipline, its current theoretical underpinnings, methodologies and practices, and to consider its future goals and impact on the production of historical knowledge. Our hope is to spark a spirited debate on the concepts and approaches that inform urban histories and to reflect on new horizons for historical research on the urban condition.
