Historian of the city, politics, and society
I’m delighted to be organizing an urban history conference, alongside Michèle Dagenais, Harold Bérubé, Valérie Poirier, and Jean-Christophe Racette. Our theme is Histories of Urban Knowledge, and the conference will engage with the different ways people “know” the city, and how urban knowledge is made, applied, and contested. This small, collegial, and bilingual conference will take place here in Montréal in late September 2019, a perfect time to visit the city. We are very happy to announce Tracy Neumann, a brilliant scholar who researches the North American city in transnational perspective, as our keynote speaker.
