Network Urban History of the North

The urban history of the North needs transnational and transdisciplinary approaches. In order to strengthen research on the Nordic countries' urban history, we need a network of all urban historians, that is scholars with an interest in urban history. If you want to join this network contact us.

The network is meant to function as an informal organization, a way to connect, to organize conferences, maybe joint research projects. The network came about as part of a conference: Urbanity in the Periphery, in Stockholm 2019. We agreed upon further meetings, regular conferences.

Also in 2019, the institute published the first comprehensive urban history of Sweden in Swedish. This book will be published in an English version in 2023.

Join the network

If you are interested in this network, please go to the website Urban History of the North and sign up. That page we will publish regular updates, call for papers and reviews.
