WELCOME

We are a moderated multi-disciplinary forum for discussion and dissemination of scholarship on urban history and urban studies. As a member of H-NET (Humanities and Social Sciences Online), H-Urban has no geographical or chronological boundaries. Thus, we welcome the involvement of scholars, professionals, and graduate students who are interested in urban places and processes across the globe and in all eras.

The Chicago Urban History Seminar welcomes expression of interest – from those early in their careers as well as more senior scholars – who wish to make presentations in our 34th season. Preference is for speakers discussing their work-in-progress rather than a book or article already in print. To express interest, please email Luciana Cravato at crovato@chicagohistory.org .

At this website you will find a 1991 article on the French Market of New Orleans, written on its bicentennial in 1991.
Also on that website is another article by historian Sally Reeves on the public markets of New Orleans published in "Cultural Vistas", the magazine of the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, in 2007.
