Register for the 2022 SACRPH Conference and Get Excited for Autumn in New York (and Online)

Many of us at the UHA also participate in the activities of SACRPH and look forward to its biennial conference. Read on for more information about SACRPH’s October meeting in New York City, its first since 2019.

After a three-year absence, The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) its thrilled to be hosting its 19th National Conference at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture on the historic campus of The City College of New York in Harlem. SACRPH has developed an innovative format that gives equal weight to virtual presentations and a hybrid keynote (Thursday, October 20, 2022), in-person tours (Friday, October 21), and in-person presentations (Saturday, October 22). Session topics focus on the global, national, regional, and local, with a particular emphasis on engaging participants in the dynamic history of Harlem, upper Manhattan, and the Bronx. The conference is intentionally interdisciplinary, with participants from the fields of history, planning, architecture, urban design, literature, arts, and the social sciences, among others. It’s sure to be intellectually inspiring and fun!
