SACRPH is delighted to welcome the newly appointed editors of the Journal of Planning History: Sonia Hirt, of Virginia Tech, and Nicholas Dagen Bloom, of NYIT. You can learn more about their research interests in urban history here: http://profiles.spia.vt.edu/shirt/ or http://www.amazon.com/Nicholas-Dagen-Bloom/e/B001H6NWDI/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0.
In the coming years, the editors hope to create special issues that will target the planning history of individual cities (such as Paris, New York, Los Angeles, and Shanghai). They also hope to create a series of issues that explore the influence of graphic design, architecture, landscape architecture, and engineering on urban planning. The editors strongly encourage submissions in these areas.
