Many disciplines including Sociology, Demography, Geography,
Architecture and Urban Planning, Economics, Anthropology, and History
are increasingly interested in "urbanism," particularly since much of
the world is being converted into cities and vast metropolitan areas.  A
diverse group of scholars, who have employed different methods and a
wide array of perspectives in their study of early cities, are featured
at the Arthur M. Sackler colloquium "Early Cities: New Perspectives on
Pre-Industrial Urbanism" scheduled for May 18-20, 2005 at the National
Academies Building in Washington, D.C. 

The ten archaeological case studies will be discussed by a group of
distinguished scholars from fields such as geography, economics, urban
planning, architecture, and environmental psychology.  All 10 case
studies will be accompanied by slides.

To facilitate the participation of younger anthropologists and social
scientists, a number of travel grants will be available for graduate
students and postdocs to help subsidize their travel to the conference.
