Historians of cities and the built environment are often trained, and can frequently be found teaching in, humanities departments such as history or art history. Equally often, however, they teach students pursuing a range of professional degrees—from city planning to architecture, public policy, education, and public health (among others). In this roundtable, a range of scholars who teach history in professional schools will reflect upon their experiences. In particular, they will consider the routes to arriving at such faculty positions, pedagogical decisions they have made in the classroom, the impact of a professional school setting upon their own research, and take-aways beyond the professional school classroom alone.
