Roundtable participants Constanza Castro (Universidad de los Andes), David Huyssen (University of York), Hilary Jones (University of Kentucky), and Michael Vann (Sacramento State University) will kick off our year-long conversation by discussing the role inequality, examined through a global urban perspective, has played in their research and writing.

About the Global Urban History Project
The Global Urban History Project (GUHP) is a collaborative initiative by scholars interested in exploring the history of urban spaces as creations and creators of global phenomena. Founded in 2017, GUHP has partnered with different urban history and world history professional associations to hold conferences and events around the world. During 2021-22, GUHP’s goal is to pursue in a more structured manner four dream conversations on topics that have inspired the work of its diverse and global membership. Cities and inequalities is one of them. Urban historians have long engaged with cities as generators and manifestations of inequalities, whether material, political, socio-economic, etc. Attuned to the historical relevance of cities as sites of intersecting local and global dynamics, global urban historians of the pre, modern, and contemporary eras are well-suited to investigate and theorize inequality as a historical phenomenon linked to the conjoined processes of urbanization and globalization. The Cities and Inequalities Roundtable will help set the parameters for that discussion and direct attendants towards promising questions and frameworks of analysis.
