I seek participants for a panel on modern transportation for the Urban History Association's Ninth Biennial Conference to be held October 18-21, 2019 in Columbia, South Carolina. Papers on roads, subways, or any other publically funded infrastructure in the post-railroad age would be most applicable, but I can be flexible with this. One of the goals I have for this panel is to use transportation and infrastructure as a framework for challenging or reorienting the traditional paradigm of the urban-rural divide.
