      Society for American City and Regional Planning History

      Presents

      13th Biennial Conference on Planning History
      Oakland, California
      October 14 - 18, 2009

      Papers are cordially invited on all aspects of urban, regional and
      community planning history. Particularly welcome are papers or complete
      sessions addressing architecture, planning, and landscape design in the
      Bay area and the West; environmental sustainability, nature and the
      metropolis; historic preservation; real estate; regions; public art; and
      studies that consider race, ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality in
      planning and the shaping of urban form. Papers presented at the conference
      will be considered for the Francois Auguste de Montequin Prize (best paper
      in North American colonial planning history) and a Student Research Prize.
      Thursday afternoon sessions will be dedicated to the history and future of
      planning in the Bay area, and SACRPH wishes to extend a special welcome to
      practitioners based in (or interested in) the region. On Sunday morning,
      attendees will choose from a range of tours.

      awards for research and publication in the field of planning history. For
