    We invite chapter proposals for a forthcoming scholarly book on suburban studies. This interdisciplinary book aims to explore the complex, diverse, and dynamic nature of suburbs, their histories, and their futures. The book will seek to engage with a wide range of topics and themes related to sub/urban spaces, cultures, politics, and environments.

    We welcome proposals from scholars across various disciplines, including but not limited to literature, sociology, history, anthropology, urban studies, geography, geoinformatics, urban planning, environmental studies, and cultural studies. We are interested in contributions that critically examine suburbs as spaces of social, economic, and political inequality and exclusion, as well as spaces of creativity, innovation, and resistance. We encourage authors to engage with debates and discussions around issues such as suburbanization, gentrification, racial and ethnic segregation, environmental sustainability, and suburban history, cultures, and identities.

    Deadline: October 30, 2023

    We invite scholars and researchers from various disciplines to submit papers for an upcoming interdisciplinary conference on Suburban Studies that takes place on May 13-14, 2024 at Palacký University, Olomouc, Czech Republic. The conference aims to explore the intersection between various scholarly fields and the suburban experience, and how literature and other media have portrayed, shaped, and reflected suburban life and its evolution.

    Suburbanization has been a dominant trend in global urban development in the past century, with urban spaces and suburbs becoming the residence of choice for millions of people around the world. This transformation has had a profound impact on the social, cultural, economic, and political dynamics of urban areas. Literature, history, sociology, psychology, geography, geoinformatics and other disciplines have provided the methodology and research that has been important for the examination, critique, and celebration of the modern suburban experience, from its inception in the early 20th century to the present day.

    The Albert Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest at Villanova University is funding five grants of up to $5000 this year related to the theme of "Cities in Historical Perspective." 

    The Center will fund up to 5 projects that creatively engage with the broad range of questions, concerns, policies and practices raised by the study of the role of cities in history, and how historical study can further public understanding of the present moment.

    This theme could encompass any number of historical topics, connecting subject matter or data points across time and space. Examples might include the effects of urbanization on notions of community in a given country, or the effects of urbanization on ecology in a given region; cities as warzones across the Cold War; the impact of immigration; political culture; caste, class, race, and gender in the history of a city or compared notions in different cities. This is by no means an exhaustive list, merely examples about the flexibility inherent in the theme. What is most important is historical focus and methodology.

    Each grantee will receive up to $5,000 depending on scope, size and need.

    The Lepage Center sponsors an annual public grant program that supports individuals and institutions pursuing historical projects in the public interest. The Center seeks to inspire a wide range of submissions from a diverse pool of applicants that are original and imaginative in content and form. Examples of the types of projects include a series of blog posts, a series of podcast conversations, digital and in-person exhibits, an oral history project, an initiative with a local newspaper to write a series of op-eds, a mapping project, a digital timeline, a crowd-sourced syllabus, an educational workshop, a multimedia resource, a collaboration with local activists, and other creative ideas.

    Applications are due to the Lepage Center by 11:59 p.m. EST on September 25, 2023. Applications should be emailed as a single attachment (PDF) to and should not exceed 15 pages.

    Applications must include:

    A title

    A project abstract (250 words)

    A project description, purpose, and its contribution to history in the public interest (1-2 pages)

    A plan of execution, including deliverables, partners, and expected outcomes (1-2 pages)

    A proposed budget (1 page)
