CALLING ALL PLANNING / HISTORY NERDS
YOU GUYS. Sorry for the all-caps, but the Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) Conference will be in my fair city of Baltimore from November 17-20, 2011.
And dudes, CHECK OUT THIS PROGRAM (PDF). Sorry, can’t stop.
First, I happen to know several of the participants:
- My Morgan State professors Siddhartha Sen (Panelist, Session 47: Planning Imperial Cities), Sidney Wong (Panelist, Session 10: The Urban Design Profession in the 1960s, and Session 29 Baltimore Highway Planning and its Effect on Planning Baltimore Roundtable), Daniel Campo (Panelist, Session 48: Industrial Redevelopment in the United States), and Joyce Pressley (Chair, Session 8: Planning for Infrastructure/Infrastructure for Planning, and Panelist, Session 55: Ecological Planning for Regions);
- My friend Alex Baca (Panelist, Session 27: Out of Place: Gentrification, Displacement and Community Resistance)
Of course, the conference costs money, but if you (like me) are strapped for cash, contact Eileen McGurty, Ph.D. at emcgurty at jhu dot edu; volunteer for one session and you get a free pass for an entire day of the conference!
Spread the word, and see you there!
