Grad Students: The UHA Has Travel Funding for Detroit 2020!

We are but a mere ten months (give or take) away from UHA 2020. In anticipation of the conference to be held in Detroit from October 8-11, 2020, The Metropole is featuring Detroit as our Metro of the Month for January. You can see our MotM posts for Detroit here.

We encourage all urbanists to consider submitting a paper or organizing a panel. You can find the “Contested Cities” CFP for UHA 2020 here.

For info about and a link to the UHA spreadsheet click here. The spreadsheet is meant to help urbanists find prospective panels and panelists.

All well and good, one might say, but what about a little financial bump for necessarily frugal graduate students traveling to the Motor City? We have some news for you!

The Urban History Association encourages graduate student submissions and will provide financial assistance for graduate students presenting work in Detroit. The UHA intends to partially reimburse presenting graduate students for travel expenses to/from Detroit. In addition, there will be conference volunteer opportunities in which graduate students willing to provide at least four hours of volunteer assistance will receive complimentary conference registration. You can check out our tweets about funding from Tuesday below as well!
