European Association for Urban History

The conference is organised every two years by the European Association for Urban History (EAUH) which was established in 1989 with support from the European Union. The Association was officially registered in August 2014. Its domicile is Helsinki, Finland.


Recent conferences have been held in Gent, Belgium (2010), Prague (2012) and Lisbon (2014).The goal of the EAUH is to provide a multidisciplinary forum for historians, geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, art and architectural historians, planners and other scholars working on different aspects of urban history from ancient times until the present.

The Association supports participation of young scholars by bursaries, which cover registration fees, and since 2010 it even offers mobility bursaries in a limited number of justified cases.

We warmly welcome you to the 13th International Conference on Urban History in Helsinki.
