Urban History Group Conference looks to re-examine the centrality of notions of function to analyses of the urban past. Asking how towns and cities were organized historically, to what purpose and for whom, the conference questions how attempts to make towns and cities ‘work’ have shaped both urban form and citizens’ lives. The question of how best to make cities function effectively as economic and social entities lies at the heart of studies of urban governance and planning: historians of Europe and the Atlantic world locate modern planning in a late eighteenth-century ‘moment’ when economic expansion and urban growth dictated that governments should consider how built form might embrace new industrial technologies to optimize their social and economic functions.
