National Academy of Sciences Sackler Early Cities Colloquium
Washington, D.C., May 18-20, 2005
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.
