Conferences

 

IPHS holds an international biennial conference. Every international conference has both made a remarkable contribution to the literature and opened a path for new research fields. 

 

In the four decades since its formation in 1976 the International Planning History Society has created a vibrant community of specialist scholars encompassing every region of the world.

Previous get-togethers have been hosted by the cities and universities of London UK, Brighton UK, Tokyo, Birmingham UK, Richmond VA, Thessaloniki, Hong Kong, Sydney Australia, Helsinki, Letchworth Garden City, Barcelona, New Delhi, Chicago, Istanbul, Sao Paulo and St Augustine Florida.  The Society’s biennial rendez-vous returns to Europe for the 17th IPHS Conference in Delft, the Netherlands.

IPHS conferences have built up a formidable historiographic legacy through the society’s specialist journal Planning Perspectives and the Planning History & Environment monograph series edited by Ann Rudkin of Alexandrine Press. We warmly invite the participation of scholars working on any aspect of the history of city and regional planning.

From July 17 to 21 2016, the International Planning History Society (IPHS) will hold its 17th conference in Delft, Netherlands.

We invite proposals for single papers, pre-organized sessions, discussion-focused roundtables, on the topic of History – Urbanism – Resilience.

Last IPHS Conference took place in St. Augustine, Florida, USA, in July 2014. Founded in 1565, St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied city in North America and whose town plan is recognized on the US National Historic Register. During the conference we enjoyed a fascinating program of presentations, tours, and receptions.
