Welcome to the Urban History Blog

This blog is the brainchild of Tom Sugrue, president of the Urban History Association, and, at the outset, the work of the digital subcommittee of the UHA board. It is an effort to bring the work of urban historians to the public, to keep scholars in touch with one another outside of conferences and publications, and, most of all, to shed light on the history of cities. Our initial contributors are Lily Geismer, assistant professor of history at Claremont McKenna College; Andrew W. Kahrl, assistant professor of history and African American Studies at the University of Virginia; Michelle Nickerson, associate professor of history at Loyola University Chicago; and LaDale Winling, assistant professor of history at Virginia Tech.
