Tracy Neumann, History, Associate Professor


Global urban history is an emerging field of study that brings together approaches from urban history, which tends to produce single-city case studies, and global history, which is concerned with the interconnectedness of the world. In this talk, Tracy Neumann, the co-editor of the Global Urban History blog and a board member of the Global Urban History Project, will discuss the intellectual geography of the new subfield and offer some examples from her own research to illustrate how scholars might research and write global urban history.

These talks are free and open to the public! We also provide free coffee, tea, and cake!
