Thank you to everyone for an outstanding 2017 SACRPH Conference. See you again in 2019!
SACRPH held its 17th National Conference on Planning History in Cleveland, Ohio, on October 26-29, 2017. The Society wishes to thank all involved — from organizers to attendees — for making this event possible. We especially thank those who took on leadership roles, including those members pictured above (l-r): Margaret Crawford (now Past-President), J. Mark Souther (Local Arrangements Committee C0-chair), and Program Committee Co-chairs Julian Chambliss and David Freund. Local Arrangements Committee Co-chair Stephanie Ryberg-Webster is not pictured.

The conference also marked changes in the Society’s leadership. We welcome D. Bradford Hunt as SACRPH’s next President, Nancy Kwak as President-Elect, and several new board members: Willow Lung-Amam, Angel Nieves, Stephanie Ryberg-Webster, J. Mark Souther, and Sanjeev Vidyarthi.
At the Saturday night reception, we announced the winners of the 2017 SACRPH awards. Please see the Awards page for further info.
The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) was founded in 1986. The organization promotes scholarship on the planning of cities and metropolitan regions over time, and bridges the gap between the study of cities and the practice of urban planning.

Dear Colleagues- thank you for circulating this call for papers.
Urbanization processes coupled with shifting oceanic cycles have dramatically changed cities and landscapes in and around the North Sea over the centuries. However spatial pressure within the interpenetrating urban and ecological North Sea systems has reached unprecedented levels.
How can the spatial disciplines address this condition?
This conference opens up a new perspective on historical urban studies by advancing the spatial realm of the sea into the geographical and conceptual foreground. We argue that it is vitally important to examine this evolving space as a cultivated artifact in order to understand its past and therefore to imagine its (sustainable) future. Such an examination requires a combined cross-disciplinary effort to re-conceptualize the sea as the essential founding space of the region and an agent of urban development.
How have historical processes of ocean urbanization reshaped our regional economic, social, cultural, and human environments both at sea and on land?
In particular regarding;
- physical conditions; ecology, infrastructure and artifacts
- legal and theoretical constructions
- narratives, representations and projections
- heritage debates
