Due to Covid-19, the 15th conference of Urban History in Antwerp is postponed to next year 1-4 September 2021.
It is with the utmost regret that the international committee of the EAUH has decided to postpone its 15th conference of Urban History in Antwerp 2-5 September 2020 to next year 1-4 September 2021.
The chronology of the current worldwide pandemic and the outbreak of Covid-19 is too unpredictable, as are the national schedules of loosening measures and lockdowns in Belgium, Europe and elsewhere. The main goals of the conference, stimulating academic debate and providing a platform for social and intellectual contacts between scholars would in these circumstances not be achieved.
All information regarding the postponement can be found at the EAUH2021-website
Despite the circumstances, the EAUH wants to continue to provide an enthusiastic platform for the dynamic field of urban history, and it is convinced Antwerp 2021 will be a great success in this respect.
